Paper Abstract

For automation and robotics in the Space Station era, NASA's Johnson Space Center is pursuing several means of synthetic vision. The optical correlator is one such. The deformable mirror device (DMD) of Texas Instruments will form the basis of the first correlator in this project. In-house and contracted effort is being used. Initial in-house activities will concentrate on an impulse deconvolution technique and on a programmable retina for spatial remappings of an image prior to correlation. The retina will permit a form of edge extraction and other primitive operations. Additionally, it will be used as a research tool for assisting persons with low vision.
