We describe a low-power VLSI wake-up detector for use in an acoustic surveillance sensor network. The detection criterion is based on the degree of low-frequency periodicity in the acoustic signal. To this end, we have developed a periodicity estimation algorithm that maps particularly well to a low-power VLSI implementation. The time-domain algorithm is(More)
—Sound localization using energy-aware hardware for sensor networks nodes is a problem with many applications in surveillance and security. In this paper, we evaluate four algorithms for sound localization using signals recorded in a natural environment with an array of commercial off-the-shelf microelectromechanical systems microphones and a specially(More)
—We propose a programmable architecture for a single instruction multiple data image processor that has its foundation on the mathematical framework of a simplicial cellular neural networks. We develop instruction primitives for basic image processing operations and show examples of processing binary and gray scale images. Fabricated in deep submicron CMOS(More)
