ABSTRACT This paper describes the work in progress of the European IST-2001-34410 CAMELLIA project, which focuses on a platform-based development of a smart imaging core to be embedded in smart cameras. Therefore the work within the CAMELLIA project comprises the specification and implementation of smart imaging applications including the development of required new algorithms and hardware. Based on an existing video encoding architecture for MPEG-4 Simple Profile, the aim is to design a smart imaging core, which is suitable for automotive and mobile communication applications. Thereby the encoding architecture is to be extended with processing units for low- and mid-level smart imaging functions. To indicate the applicability of this platform-based development, a first approach for a motion estimation based background detection using a hardware motion estimation unit is illustrated in this paper. Furthermore, first results employing the background detection to detect moving objects in video sequences using a functional simulator of a video encoding architecture are presented.
