We are addressing two aspects of vision-based system development that are not fully exploited in current frameworks: abstraction over low-level details and high-level module reusability. Through an evaluation of existing frameworks, we relate these shortcomings to the lack of systematic classification of sub-tasks in vision-based system development. In this paper we present our work-in-progress which addresses these two issues by classifying vision into decoupled sub-tasks, hence defining a clear scope for a vision-based system development framework and its sub-components. Firstly, we decompose the task of vision system development into data management and processing. We then proceed to further decompose data management into three components: data access, conversion and transportation. We present the Vision Utility (VU) framework which provides abstraction over the vision system data management and verify this approach through an example vision system.
