Threshold: - 2024.1 English

Vitis Libraries

Release Date
2024-05-30
Version
2024.1 English

A threshold=442, 3109 and 566 is used for 3x3, 5x5, and 7x7 filters respectively. This threshold is verified over 40 sets of images. The threshold can be varied, based on the application. The corners are marked in the output image. If the corner is found in a particular location, that location is marked with 255, otherwise it is zero.

Deviation from OpenCV

In Vitis Vision, thresholding and NMS are included, but in OpenCV they are not included. In Vitis Vision, all the blocks are implemented in fixed point. Whereas, in OpenCV, all the blocks are implemented in floating point.
