Corner-detection techniques are being widely used in computer vision - for example in object recognition to find suitable candidate points for feature registration and matching. Most computer-vision applications have to operate on real-time video sequences, hence maintaining a consistent throughput and high accuracy are important constrains that ensure high-quality object recognition. A high throughput can be achieved by exploiting the inherent parallelism within the algorithm on massively parallel architectures like many-core processors. However, accelerating such algorithms on many-core CPUs offers several challenges as the achieved speedup depends on the instantaneous load on the processing elements. In this work, we present a new resource-aware Harris corner-detection algorithm for many-core processors. The novel algorithm can adapt itself to the dynamically varying load on a many-core processor to process the frame within a predefined time interval. The results show a 19% improvement in throughput and an 18% improvement in accuracy. © 2014 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
