Low power systems equipped with sensors that recognize users and objects
are increasingly used today. These devices need to take actions according to
the information resulting from the processed data. Sensed data processing is an intensive
task and often needs more computational power than that available on the
system connected to the sensor. This paper analyzes the opportunity of running the computational
intensive tasks remotely in a remote High Performance Computing (HPC) center compared to processing
data directly on low power sensor platform and still providing a real time response. The platform
used is Raspberry Pi and the sensor is the Raspberry Pi Camera Module. Various connectivity
methods to the HPC center will be tested such as wired, Wi-Fi and cellular HSDPA.
Keywords: HPC, image sensor, java, raspberry Pi, security, wireless.
