Researchers in a consortium of eight partners from six EU countries, including the Fraunhofer Institute for Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation IOSB (Fraunhofer IOSB) in Germany, have created the TULIPP platform, which makes it possible to develop energy-efficient embedded image processing systems more quickly and less expensively, with a much shorter time to market.

The platform consists of design guidelines, a configurable hardware platform, and a real-time-capable operating system that supports multicore processors, as well as a programming tool chain. \

Said Fraunhofer IOSB researcher Igor Tchouchenkov, "The toolchain makes it possible to individually display and optimize energy consumption for each code function."
