In our previous blog, Tips to Power Through Sensor Development Challenges, we saw how sensors provide approximate measurements of real-world phenomena. These different types of sensors can exhibit inaccuracies from various things such as its design, environmental conditions, and others. We also touched upon solutions for overcoming these challenges such as sensor fusion–the practice of gathering and processing data from multiple sensors.

Our previous post about OpenCL optimization on the Qualcomm® Adreno™ GPU described several candidate use cases. In this post we’ll cover a two-step optimization for apps that use the Sobel filter. The optimization is based on data load improvement, OpenCL functions, and support for those functions in the Adreno GPU hardware.
