The sophistication and high accuracy of Deep Neural Networks have gotten significant attention in recent years, with a wide range of applications making use of their capabilities. However, the deployment of such networks still faces limitations due to the high volume of data to be processed and the high computational requirements. In this article we focus on the effects that data volume reduction, due to image compression and scaling down the image resolution, will have on the detection accuracy for the design case of a powered wheelchair guidance system. Throughout our analysis we show that the reduction in image resolution to a factor of 16times in image area alongside with JPEG compression provides a detection accuracy of over 0.93 in mAP, while the additional error in the position estimation of the caregiver is less than 0.5 cm. By reducing the data volume we inherently reduce the communication energy consumption, which is reduced by more than one order of magnitude. These results prove that we can overcome the complexity of high data volume for the deployment of DNNs in resource constrained IoT applications by interlacing the effects of image compression and resolution reduction, maintaining the accuracy and reducing the node energy consumption.

Abstract

The sophistication and high accuracy of Deep Neural Networks have gotten significant attention in recent years, with a wide range of applications making use of their capabilities. However, the deployment of such networks still faces limitations due to the high volume of data to be processed and the high computational requirements. In this article we focus on the effects that data volume reduction, due to image compression and scaling down the image resolution, will have on the detection accuracy for the design case of a powered wheelchair guidance system. Throughout our analysis we show that the reduction in image resolution to a factor of 16times in image area alongside with JPEG compression provides a detection accuracy of over 0.93 in mAP, while the additional error in the position estimation of the caregiver is less than 0.5 cm. By reducing the data volume we inherently reduce the communication energy consumption, which is reduced by more than one order of magnitude. These results prove that we can overcome the complexity of high data volume for the deployment of DNNs in resource constrained IoT applications by interlacing the effects of image compression and resolution reduction, maintaining the accuracy and reducing the node energy consumption.
