The advancement in technology continues to consume an increasing part of our lives and as we watch the slowing of Moore’s Law as Integrated Circuits approach physical limitations, we will continue to search for faster execution of programs.

The advancement in robotics and machine vision will see them become part of our daily lives and the need for real time machine vision algorithms will increase.

This dissertation will investigate optimisation options when executing machine vision algorithms on a multi-core processor and provide a guide for programmers to use when writing similar machine vision algorithms on Arm A7 or A15 processors containing a Mali T628 Graphics processing unit.
