This paper describes the application of a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) in the context of a predator/prey scenario. The CNN is trained and run on data from a Dynamic and Active Pixel Sensor (DAVIS) mounted on a Summit XL robot (the predator), which follows another one (the prey). The CNN is driven by both conventional image frames and dynamic vision(More)
— This paper reports an object tracking algorithm for a moving platform using the dynamic and active-pixel vision sensor (DAVIS). It takes advantage of both the active pixel sensor (APS) frame and dynamic vision sensor (DVS) event outputs from the DAVIS. The tracking is performed in a three step-manner: regions of interest (ROIs) are generated by a(More)
—This paper describes the software and FPGA implementation of a Retinal Ganglion Cell model which detects moving objects. It is shown how this processing, in conjunction with a Dynamic Vision Sensor as its input, can be used to extrapolate information about object position. Software-wise, a system based on an array of these of RGCs has been developed in(More)
—This paper describes a VLSI automatic quality control pitch detector circuit which can be used for detecting the identity of a unique bird. The detector is based on a previous VLSI model of the local gain control mechanism of the outer hair cells of the biological cochlea. This work presents characterization results from a 20-channel chip fabricated in a(More)
—This demonstration shows how object detection and tracking are possible thanks to a new implementation which takes inspiration from the visual processing of a particular type of ganglion cell in the retina. The demonstration shows the results of two systems running in parallel, one software-based (Java) and one FPGA-based. In both cases the front-end(More)
