Paper Abstract

With the introduction of high mega-pixel image sensors and large focal length lenses in today's consumer level digital still cameras, single-shot passive auto-focus (AF) performance in terms of speed and accuracy remains to be a critical issue among camera manufacturers. To address the AF performance issue, this paper covers the real-time implementation of a previously developed modified rule-based single-shot AF search method on the Texas Instruments TMS320DM350 processor. It is shown that a balance between AF speed and accuracy is needed to meet the real-time constraint of the digital camera system. Performance results indicate that this solution outperforms the standard global search method in terms of AF speed and accuracy.
