bio-inspired algorithms for the realization of a stand-alone vision chip

Intelligent vision systems are more and more important in a lot of applications nowadays, ranging from security at home, in cars, navigation of drones and robots, ... but their practical applicability is still limited by the large computing system they require.

The IRIS project exhibits 3 facets.

  • The first facet opens a new way by proposing new bio-inspired algorithms for the realization of a stand-alone vision chip for both optic flow (retinal slip speed) measurement and contrasting target localization over a wide luminance range.
  • The second facet will be focused on the development of new visual processing algorithms for motion detection and object localization.
  • The third facet takes its place at the crossroad between the design of a novel vision chip and the use of novel control laws for the visual guidance of an aerial vehicle.
