Abstract:

1 Software has been developed to implement the Gabor motion detection algorithm. This software consists of utility functions, algorithm modules, and test pattern generators for the experiments and verification of the spatial and temporal selectivity. 2 Based on the theoretical analysis, the optical flow was computed for several artificially generated test patterns. These test patterns are designed to test the concept of spatial and orientation selectivity. The patterns were generated by using virtual reality technique based on three-dimensional computer graphics. 3 In addition to the algorithm development and verification, we have also started work on the design and verification of the electronics basic building blocks for the VLSI implementation. This early start of the hardware design concurrent with the algorithm analysis and verification will further ensure the quality of the work in both hardware and software. 4 In order to benchmark the VLSI chips, a hardware prototype board is under design and construction. This board will be used to compare the performance of digital approach vs. analog approach, analog approach based on the standard off-the-shelf components vs. analog customer- design VLSI approach
