Abstract [en]

The interest of using GPU:s as general processing units for heavy computations (GPGPU) has increased in the last couple of years. Manufacturers such as Nvidia and AMD make GPU:s powerful enough to outrun CPU:s in one order of magnitude, for suitable algorithms. For embedded systems, GPU:s are not as popular yet. The embedded GPU:s available on the market have often not been able to justify hardware changes from the current systems (CPU:s and FPGA:s) to systems using embedded GPU:s. They have been too hard to get, too energy consuming and not suitable for some algorithms. At SICK IVP, advanced computer vision algorithms run on FPGA:s. This master thesis optimizes two such algorithms for embedded GPU:s and evaluates the result. It also evaluates the status of the embedded GPU:s on the market today. The results indicates that embedded GPU:s perform well enough to run the evaluatedd algorithms as fast as needed. The implementations are also easy to understand compared to implementations for FPGA:s which are competing hardware.
