This paper proposes a framework for constructing and training a radial basis function (RBF) neural network. For this purpose, a sequential learning algorithm is presented to adapt the structure of the network, in which it is possible to create a new hidden unit and also to detect and remove inactive units. The structure of the Gaussian functions is modi"ed(More)
This paper describes a bioinspired preprocessing and coding system devised for producing optimal multi-electrode stimulation at the cortical level, starting from image sequences and working at video rates. A hybrid platform with software and reconÿgurable hardware delivers a continuously varying stream of pulses or spike patterns. The main objective of this(More)
Neuro-engineering is providing biomedical engineers with technology to interface the nervous system, which is useful to create prosthetic devices to palliate sensorial or motor disabilities. Motivated by the success of cochlear implants for deaf patients, we are now facing the challenge of creating a prosthetic visual system for the blind. An artificial(More)
As there are many possibilities to select the set of basic operators used in the fuzzy inference process, the search for the fuzzy operators that are most suitable for the different steps of a fuzzy system, their characterization and evaluation, can be included among the most important topics in the field of fuzzy logic. A better insight into the(More)
This paper describes a tool devised for automatic design of bioinspired visual processing models using reconfigurable digital hardware. The whole system is indicated for the analysis of vision models, especially those with real–time requirements. We achieve a synthesizable FPGA/ASIC design starting from a high level description of a retina, which is made(More)
The rear-view mirror is unhelpful when an overtaking car is in the blind quadrants (blind spot). In this contribution we describe the software implementation of an algorithm to monitor vehicle overtaking processes. This algorithm detects the vehicle to the rear, and discriminates whether it is approaching or not, and if approaching, it alerts us of its(More)
Fully auditory Brain-computer interfaces based on the dichotic listening task (DL-BCIs) are suited for users unable to do any muscular movement, which includes gazing, exploration or coordination of their eyes looking for inputs in form of feedback, stimulation or visual support. However, one of their disadvantages, in contrast with the visual BCIs, is(More)
Stimulus correlation and adaptive movement detection, among other tasks can be performed with VLSI general-purpose neurons that have controllable steady and transient responses. This paper presents experimental results of simple neural primitives based on the CMOS neuron approach described in [11]. Stimulus correlation experiments illustrate the well(More)
