Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is a result of the Embedded Computer Vision Workshop 2007. . provides a very good overview of the current state of the art in embedded computer vision and of the major trends and growing markets. . it is a good start and provides an extensive list of references to look for if one wants to go into more detail. Overall I would recommend this book to anyone interested in getting into this exciting field." (Marcus E. Hennecke, IAPR Newsletter, Vol. 33 (2), April, 2011)
