Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is training next-generation cameras called dynamic vision sensors to interpret live information. Unlike a traditional digital camera that records large amounts of information in frames, a dynamic vision sensor, or DVS, transmits changes in light intensity on a per-pixel basis. Individual pixel locations are recorded and time-stamped to the microsecond, creating “data events” that are processed by a neuromorphic network. “Because the DVS records only changes in what it sees, there is no redundant data,” said Kemal Fidan, an ORNL intern.
This capability enables the sensors to be fast, power-efficient, and effective in a wide range of light intensity. The DVS could be applied…READ MORE
