Abstract:A video pipeline design has been proposed in this project to look at a basic part of numerous machine vision applications involving drones. Most research in that field focuses on a complete application and does not look at the influence of implementation choices on video streaming. This project tries to fill in that gap. Several options are explored to design a video pipeline that fits on a drone. A developer board is used that combines hardware and software to have enough performance and is suitable for use on a drone. The communication block of the design is tested and reached an average bandwidth of 461 MB/s with a latency of 76.6 microseconds. The results indicate that the proposed design is feasible. Additionally, it can be used as a starting point for visual odometry or machine vision applications. Unfortunately, as yet nothing can be said about the influence of combining hardware and software on performance.
