Renesas R-Car VSP1 2-D Histogram Data
This format describes histogram data generated by the Renesas R-Car VSP1 2-D Histogram (HGT) engine.
The VSP1 HGT is a histogram computation engine that operates on HSV data. It operates on a possibly cropped and subsampled input image and computes the sum, maximum and minimum of the S component as well as a weighted frequency histogram based on the H and S components.
The histogram is a matrix of 6 Hue and 32 Saturation buckets, 192 in total. Each HSV value is added to one or more buckets with a weight between 1 and 16 depending on the Hue areas configuration. Finding the corresponding buckets is done by inspecting the H and S value independently.
The Saturation position n (0 - 31) of the bucket in the matrix is found by the expression:
n = S / 8
The Hue position m (0 - 5) of the bucket in the matrix depends on how the HGT Hue areas are configured. There are 6 user configurable Hue Areas which can be configured to cover overlapping Hue values:
Area 0 Area 1 Area 2 Area 3 Area 4 Area 5 ________ ________ ________ ________ ________ ________ \ /| |\ /| |\ /| |\ /| |\ /| |\ /| |\ / \ / | | \ / | | \ / | | \ / | | \ / | | \ / | | \ / X | | X | | X | | X | | X | | X | | X / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \ / \| |/ \| |/ \| |/ \| |/ \| |/ \| |/ \ 5U 0L 0U 1L 1U 2L 2U 3L 3U 4L 4U 5L 5U 0L <0..............................Hue Value............................255>
When two consecutive areas don’t overlap (n+1L is equal to nU) the boundary value is considered as part of the lower area.
Pixels with a hue value included in the centre of an area (between nL and nU included) are attributed to that single area and given a weight of 16. Pixels with a hue value included in the overlapping region between two areas (between n+1L and nU excluded) are attributed to both areas and given a weight for each of these areas proportional to their position along the diagonal lines (rounded down).
The Hue area setup must match one of the following constrains:
0L <= 0U <= 1L <= 1U <= 2L <= 2U <= 3L <= 3U <= 4L <= 4U <= 5L <= 5U
0U <= 1L <= 1U <= 2L <= 2U <= 3L <= 3U <= 4L <= 4U <= 5L <= 5U <= 0L
Byte Order. All data is stored in memory in little endian format. Each cell in the tables contains one byte.
