SPIE: European SeeBetter program is aimed to design of an integrated vision sensor adding asynchronous retinal functionality to artificial vision sensors. Recent silicon retinas include event-based readouts to mimic the asynchronous spikes on the eye optic nerve and reduce the output data amount or increase the effective frame rate:
SeeBetter intends to build a hybrid vision sensor where pixel electronics die is bump-bonded to BSI photodiode array. This approach allows to implement a complex retina cell models while maintaining large fill factor of the photodiode array.
