Dynamic Vision Sensors

Dynamic vision sensors (DVS) are a completely new way of doing machine vision. Conventional video cameras use enormously redundant frames, wasting energy, computational power and time. The DVS uses patented technology that works like your own retina: only local pixel-level changes caused by moving in a scene are transmitted. The results are dramatic improvements in speed, power, dynamic range, data storage and computational requirements.


DAVIS – 2nd generation Dynamic Vision Sensors

Dynamic and active-pixel vision sensors extend DVS technology by allowing simultaneous capture of standard absolute intensity frames from the same pixels.



DAS – Dynamic Audio Sensors

Dynamic audio sensors model the cochlea in sending asynchronous spike-encoded representation of auditory activity.




The pushbot is a robotic platform with embedded DVS, for research into event-based sensory-motor systems.


Physiologist’s Friend

The Physiologist’s Friend Chip electronically emulates cells in the visual system and responds realistically to visual stimuli. Researchers and teachers can use this chip as a simple substitute animal for training students, developing new techniques, or testing experimental setups before using an animal.
