The Network-Centric Applied Research Team (N-CART) introduces a distributed model for constrained image recognition using lossy compressed images. The recognition engine resides on a network node apart from where the images are taken. We have found that by employing such a model, the cost and complexity of the system can be reduced while also allowing the flexibility of the recognition services to be used by different devices.
