Abstract

In this work we show that a metaheuristic, the variable neighborhood search (VNS), can be effectively used in order to improve the performance of the hardware-friendly version of the support vector machine (SVM). Our target is the implementation of the feed-forward phase of SVM on resource-limited hardware devices, such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and digital signal processors (DSPs). The proposal has been tested on a machine-vision benchmark dataset for embedded automotive applications, showing considerable performance improvements respect to previously used techniques.
