Presentation will begin: Thursday, July 21, 2022 - 11:00 AM EDT
Presented by: Luca Verre, Prophesee
Traditional machine vison systems have relied on frame-based methods, which represent motion by capturing a number of still frames each second. For modern computer-enabled vision in industrial machines, this representation of motion is of little use. The camera is “blind” between each frame, losing information on moving objects, and each image — containing the same irrelevant background objects — is repeatedly recorded, generating excessive unhelpful data.
Evolution has developed an elegant solution so that natural vision never encounters these problems. It doesn’t take frames. Cells in our eyes report back to the brain when they detect a change in the scene.
This is the founding principle behind Event-Based Vision: – Independent receptors collect all the essential information, and nothing else.
Event-based vision is a paradigm-shifting advancement that uses neuromorphic techniques based on how the human eye records and interprets visual inputs. Among the benefits of the sensor technology for developers of advanced machine vision systems are energy efficiency, low latency, adaptive processing, and rapid learning. Event-based vision is ideally suited to machine vision applications — for industrial automation, IoT, automotive, and mobile cases — that require extremely-high performance, low-power operation, and/or operation in challenging lighting conditions.
