Paper Abstract

In this report we present some initial ideas about possible uses of the principally new advanced sensor technology based on the photoelectric structures with memory (PESM) in intelligent vehicle highway systems (IVHS). PESM is an integral multilayer solid-state device capable of registering, storing, converting, and processing of images. The information is registered and stored in the form of two-dimensional charge and potential patterns in the plane of the layers, and is transferred and transformed in a perpendicular direction due to interaction of these patterns correspondingly with electrical and optical input signals. That is why PESM provides high operation potential (to 1014 operation/bit/s) and some microsecond to millisecond operating time for such integral operations with images such as addition, subtraction, contouring, correlation, and so on. It seems to be very suitable for solving such widespread tasks of technical vision and image processing as object counting and recognition, moving object selection with recording of its trajectory, object tracking, and so on in real time and without complicated computer processing. We endeavor to use PESM, combining in itself the capabilities of photosensor and preprocessor devices, in intelligent observation and control systems on highways and for vehicle guidance applications.
