Computational cameras

A novel close-to-sensor computational camera has been designed and developed at the ViLab. ROIs can be captured and processed at 1000fps; the concurrent processing enables low latency sensor control and flexible image processing. With 9DoF motion sensing, the low, size, weight and power form-factor makes it ideally suited for robotics and UAV applications. The modular design allows multiple configurations and output options, easing development of embedded applications. General purpose output can directly interface with external devices such as servos and motors while ethernet offers a conventional image output capability. A binocular system can be configured with self-driven pan/tilt positioning, as an autonomous verging system or as a standard stereo pair. More information can be found here xcamflyer.
