Image Pipe Daemon (ipiped), is a daemon with D-Bus interface that allows to control and interact with the image processing functionality provided by the camera subsystem hardware on Texas Instruments SoC
families and supports the interaction with camera sensor settings
This API was initially developed for the DM365 platform and the mt9p031 CMOS sensor. However the ipiped was designed to be modular and easily adapted to interact with other camera subsystems architectures and camera sensors.
Drivers exists for controlling the functionality of the image procesing found on this SoCs and the camera sensor, however ipiped offers an extra layer of functionality to make easier for applications to control the settings.
Ipiped also supports RidgeRun's proprietary auto exposure/auto white balance library. This project includes a sample application called ipipe-client to interact with the ipiped.
