Dynamic Vision Sensor (DVS)

From inilabs.com

DVS Overview

Dvs128AndEdvsWithCreditCardConventional vision sensors see the world as a series of frames. Successive frames contain enormous amounts of redundant information, wasting memory access, RAM, disk space, energy, computational power and time. In addition, each frame imposes the …
