Paper Abstract

CMOS VLSI imaging sensors are described, which employ a novel approach to image acquisition and processing. Principles of biological visual systems, such as adaptation and selective attention, are applied to achieve a high performance imaging system. The Adaptive Sensitivity mechanism enables the acquisition of extremely wide dynamic range, much wider than that of conventional semiconductor sensors, while preserving image details and while dynamically adapting to the image contents. The Intelligent Scan mechanism filters in only the areas of interest, thus reducing the amount of transmitted visual data in an intelligent, image-dependent, adaptive manner, The sensor are complemented with an image processing system, described in a companion paper.
