The San Diego Vision Benchmark Suite (SD-VBS) is a suite of diverse vision applications drawn from the vision domain. It is intended to help architects, compiler writers, and system designers study the construction of future systems that excel at vision-oriented applications. Additionally, vision codes tend to have a fair amount of parallelism, which makes them a good candidate for formulating future multicore and parallel architectures.

The applications are drawn from the current state-of-the-art in computer vision, in consultation with vision researchers. Each benchmark is provided in both MATLAB and C form.

MATLAB is the preferred language of vision researchers, while C makes it easier to map the applications to research platforms. The C code minimizes pointer usage and employs clean constructs to make them easier for parallelization.

Furthermore, we provide a spectrum of input sets that enable researchers to control simulation time, and to understand properties as inputs increase to leverage better processor performance.

The benchmarks are listed below:

Disparity Map Motion, Tracking and Stereo Vision
Feature Tracking Motion, Tracking and Stereo Vision
Image Segmentation Image Analysis
Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) Image Analysis
Maximally Stable Regions (MSER) Image Analysis
Robot Localization Image Understanding
Support Vector Machines (SVM) Image Understanding
Image Stitch Image Processing and Formation
Texture Synthesis Image Processing and Formation
