Project Description

We develop a CMOS+FPGA vision system to perform fast (1,000fps) and high-resolution (1,000x1,000 pixels) visual feedback. A CMOS image sensor realizes fast capturing of successive images and an FPGA where vision algorithms are implemented enables realtime computation of features for visual feedback.
2006/12/6-8 Exhibition of CMOS+FPGA Vision at 2006 International Technical Exhibition on Image Technology and Equipment (Pacifico Yokohama) with Image Technology Laboratory Corp. and Marubeni Solutions Corp.
2006/5/17 Kazuhiro Shimizu was nominated to Finalist of 2006 IEEE Int. Conf. Robotics and Automation Best Vision Paper Award by CMOS+FPGA Vision System for Visual Feedback of Mechanical Systems.
