 Abstract
An energy-efficient object matching accelerator is proposed for mobile object recognition based on matching prediction scheme. Conventionally, vocabulary tree has been used to save the external memory bandwidth in object matching process but involved massive internal memory transactions to examine each object in a database. In this paper, a novel object matching accelerator is proposed based on matching predictions to reduce unnecessary internal memory transactions by mitigating non-target object examinations, thereby improving the energy-efficiency. Experimental results show a 26% reduction in power-delay product compared to the prior art.
