Vision systems for autonomous robots sometimes require high resolution, sometimes a wide eld-of-view, and always fast processing. To achieve these same goals, the primate retina performs nonlinear \image" data reduction which ultimately produces a relatively small output. Such a data reduction scheme provides a compromise between the requirements of eld-of-view, resolution, and speed of processing. An overlapping receptive eld (RF) data reduction model, as proposed in the system presented here… CONTINUE READING
