      The accuracy of camera-based object detection (CBOD) built upon deep learning is often evaluated against the real objects in frames only. However, such simplistic evaluation ignores the fact that many unimportant objects ...
    • An energy-efficient GeMM-based convolution accelerator with on-the-fly im2col 

      Fornt Mas, Jordi; Fontova Muste, Pau; Caro Roca, Martí; Abella Ferrer, Jaume; Moll Echeto, Francisco de Borja; Altet Sanahujes, Josep; Studer, Christoph (2023-11)
      Article
      Open Access
      Systolic array architectures have recently emerged as successful accelerators for deep convolutional neural network (CNN) inference. Such architectures can be used to efficiently execute general matrix–matrix multiplications ...
    • Energy efficient object detection for automotive applications with YOLOv3 and approximate hardware 

      Fornt Mas, Jordi; Fontova Muste, Pau; Caro Roca, Martí; Abella Ferrer, Jaume; Moll Echeto, Francisco de Borja; Altet Sanahujes, Josep; Rubio Sola, Jose Antonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2023)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Deep neural networks are the dominant models for perception tasks in the automotive domain, but their high computational complexity makes it difficult to execute them in real time with an acceptable power consumption on ...
    • FPGA-based stereo vision system for autonomous driving 

      Fornt Mas, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-05-21)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      The project consists on the design and implementation of a real-time stereo vision image sensor oriented to autonomous driving systems using an FPGA. The function of this sensor is to output a real-time depth image from ...
    • Two examples of approximate arithmetic to reduce hardware complexity and power consumption 

      Fornt Mas, Jordi; Jin, Leixin; Etxezarreta, Imanol; Fontova, Pau; Altet Sanahujes, Josep; Calomarde Palomino, Antonio; Morancho Llena, Enrique; Moll Echeto, Francisco de Borja; Rubio Sola, Jose Antonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      As the end of Moore's Law approaches, electronic system designers must find ways to keep up with the ever increasing computational demands of the modern era. Some computationally intensive applications, such as multimedia ...
