eyeSight Gesture Recognition on mobile with OpenCL enabled by Arm Mali

This demo highlights the benefits of using GPU Compute via OpenCL™ to enhance detection rates and therefore precision of gesture recognition.  By using OpenCL the detection rate can be increased from ~10 detections per second with a purely CPU-based algorithm to ~40 detections per second when OpenCL is used.

The demo runs on the Arndale development board which contains the Samsung Exynos 5 Dual SoC.  This SoC contains a dual core Arm Cortex-A15 CPU and quad core Arm Mali-T604 GPU.

Notice how the gesture detection algorithm is still able to function when the camera feed is replaced with a very low quality video shot in low light conditions.  This low quality video simulates what the standard webcam sees and also has extra noise added to make the test more challenging.
