Pagination or Media Count:
This report results from a contract tasking AnaLogic Computers Ltd. to investigate adaptation of a Hungarian-developed single-piece imaging block, the Panoramic Annular Lens PAL and the CNN chip for a few military applications. An existing 64X64 CNN-UM focal plane array processor chip contains the companion microprocessor, some FLASH and RAM memory, and some other serial and parallel communications devices. The unit can communicate with a PC for testing, programming, setup purposes and displaying the image acquired and processed by the focal plane array processor in real time. Sophisticated analogic CNN algorithms will be developed to detect movements and other predefined optical events in the whole 360 degrees view area. By applying these analogic algorithms the CNN focal plane processor will be able to permanently monitor the whole 360 degree scene. The algorithms will be sensitive for movement of predefined sized and shaped objects, or other predefined visual events.
