AbstractThermal imaging has many applications that all leverage from the heat map that can be constructed using this type of imaging. It can be used in Internet of Things (IoT) applications to detect the features of surroundings. In such a case, Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) can be used to carry out many visual analysis tasks which can provide the system with the capacity to make decisions. However, due to their huge computational cost, such networks are recommended to exploit custom hardware platforms to accelerate their inference as well as reduce the overall energy consumption of the system. In this work, an energy adaptive system is proposed, which can intelligently configure itself based on the battery energy level. Besides achieving a maximum speed increase that equals 6.38X, the proposed system achieves significant energy that is reduced by 97.81% compared to a conventional general-purpose CPU.
