Paper Abstract

This paper introduces the Smart Sensor project at the Electro-Optics Technology Center at Tufts University and describes one Smart Sensor under development. The overall intent of the project is to develop technologies for electronic "eyes" capable of identifying the shape, location and size of any closed contour (object) in the field of view. The design described herein employs algorithms simulated and proven in software. Results from an incomplete hardware realization using discrete circuit elements are presented.
