Paper Abstract

NASA and Texas Instruments have developed an image processor, the Programmable Remapper 1, for certain functions in machine vision. The Remapper performs a highly arbitrary geometric warping of an image at video rate. It might ultimately be shrunk to a size and cost that could allow its use in a low-vision prosthesis. We have developed coordinate warpings for retinitis pigmentosa (tunnel vision) and for maculapathy (loss of central field) that are intended to make best use of the patient's remaining viable retina. The rationales and mathematics are presented for some warpings that we will try in clinical studies using the Remapper's prototype. (Recorded video imagery was shown at the conference for the maculapathy remapping.
