The main objective of this project is the realization of a smart camera, enabled for efficiently processing the visual stimulus. This device will be the basic element of a wireless sensor network for cooperative vision oriented towards surveillance and monitoring of unstructured spaces. In the pursue of this global objective, several partial objectives will be reached:

  1. CMOS implementation of bioinspired image processing models in concurrence with image sensing, and under a tight power budget.
  2. Integration in a single silicon chip of a vision system consisting on a masively parallel processor for low level tasks and a conventional processor for the higher level tasks.
  3. Setup of the wireless sensor network communication and power supply infrastructure.
  4. Development of a demonstrator for cooperative vision using the devices conceived during this project.
