Presented by: Luca Verre, Prophesee
While the concept of neuromorphic-enabled event cameras isn’t new, the last few years have seen a significant pick up in the adoption of this technology. This is due, in part, to the progress made by sensor companies in improving sensor performance, size, and power. Additionally, several industries have leveraged the benefits of these sensors and software for machine vision systems that can capture and analyze visual data more efficiently.
Event cameras have fundamental benefits in terms of efficiency, speed, and dynamic range. Event-based vision sensors can achieve better speed versus power consumption trade-offs. By relying on a different way of acquiring information compared with a conventional camera, they also address applications in the field of machine vision and AI.
These benefits, driven by an escalation in the volume and complexity of visual data processing in many types of applications, from industrial to transportation to consumer and mobile, have fueled interest in this technology. This in turn has ignited a proliferation of development activity and experimentation, spurred on by Open-Source initiatives and more advanced development kits and tools from some of the early providers of event cameras.
Event-based vision can no longer just be viewed as an approach for industrial vision systems such as robotics, inspection, and predictive maintenance, although this remains the largest market. The technology has been used to explore the outer reaches of the solar system, help restore sight to the visually impaired, and identify gene sequences in advanced scientific research. Event cameras are also now making inroads into more consumer-facing applications such as mobile phones, cars, wearables, and AR/VR systems, which is significant from a market growth standpoint.
This talk looks at the current state of neuromorphic-enabled vision systems and provides a glimpse into a future where the systems can allow for more efficient and helpful vision-enabled purposes across all aspects of life.
