To achieve real time requirements, pipeline structures have been widely exploited both in the keypoint extraction and in the descriptor generation stages. Simplifications to the original algorithm have been also applied to allow a simpler hardware implementation. The proposed architecture has been synthesized on a Xilinx Virtex 5 FPGA. It generates 3072 descriptor vectors for VGA images at 99 frames per second at a clock rate of 100 MHz.
