Abstract:

The goal of this research program was to develop novel algorithms, architectures, and hardware for a truly smart camera, with inherent capability for semi-autonomous object recognition as well as optimal image capture. In this research, we combined striking advances in the understanding of the mechanisms of biological vision systems with similar advances in hybrid electronicphotonic packaging technology, in order to develop adaptive, artificial, biologically-inspired vision systems. A key research program objective, therefore, was to establish and address the fundamental scientific and technological issues that currently inhibit the implementation of such adaptive optoelectronic eyes.
