In the paper, two examples of embedded vision modules are described. Firstly, it is demonstrated how fiducial marker tracking algorithm can be adopted for operation on Raspberry Pi. Usage of proposed ideas allows to achieve around 60fps speed of binary marker tracking. Secondly, we describe the problem of text detection and recognition in outdoor environment. Experimental results indicate on acceptable results and good potential to provide low-cost and efficient embedded vision system for this purpose. Technical details of both embedded vision modules are comprehensively discussed.
