Steering with an aVLSI motion detection chip


Moeckel, R; Jaeggi, R; Liu, S C (2008). Steering with an aVLSI motion detection chip. In: IEEE. Proceedings of 2008 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS 2008), Seattle, WA, 18-21 May 2008. Piscataway, NJ, US: IEEE Service Center, 1036-1039.

Abstract

We demonstrate the capabilies of a 1D motion detection chip in steering a car in a simulated racing game. The chip implemented in a 1.5 mum CMOS VLSI process, is comprised of 24 motion pixels that extracts optical flow in parallel. The local optical flow values go to a single-layer perceptron whose output is used to steer the car in the racing game. Because of the continuous-time operation of the motion detection chip, the computationally expensive task of generating a control signal for the car based on the visual scene is largely alleviated.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
