ALPS (Autonomous, ultra Low Power visual Sensors for surveillance and monitoring) Featured

Written by  Tuesday, 18 December 2012 18:36
The objective of this project is to develop a new kind of visual sensor: complex enough to sense and describe the visual world it observes - yet enjoys the characteristics of simple (e.g. temperature) sensors: ultra-low power consumption, easy connect ability, and a small, unobtrusive form-factor. The proposed vision system is based on a custom CMOS ultra low-power vision sensor, partially embedding a reliable algorithm for people detection and monitoring in the analog stage of the pixel; a low power sensor interface allowing the sensor to live for at least 5 months- with a minimum energy-budget, powered with a tiny battery or a super capacitor, which can be recharged by a 1 cm2 solar-cell; a high-level computing platform which is turned on only when necessary, triggered by the sensor as soon as it detects a potential alert situation.
