In 2005, the ANTARES Collaboration deployed and operated at a depth of 2500 m a so-called Mini Instrumentation Line equipped with Optical Modules (MILOM) at the ANTARES site. The various data acquired during the continuous operation from April to December 2005 of the MILOM confirm the satisfactory performance of the Optical Modules, their front-end(More)
A new stereo vision system is presented, which is based on a low-power CMOS binary vision sensor, with embedded spatial contrast extraction and output data compression, through positional data coding. A novel disparity algorithm adapted to the output of the sensors has been developed. The algorithm has been simulated and tested on a real application. The(More)
A 64x64 pixel vision sensor performs adaptive background subtraction and event detection at very low power consumption. The chip is based on a VLSI-oriented vision algorithm, implemented at pixel-level, mimicking the basic process of pre-attentive visual perception. Anomalous pixel behaviors are detected and coded into a 2-bit/pixel. Each pixel integrates(More)
