10 April 1995 Vision through the power supply of the NCP retina
Author Affiliations +
As previously reported, the NCP retina is a programmable smart sensor in which images can be thresholded or halftoned and then processed in binary form by a micro-grained array processor. It is shown here that the observation of the current drawn by the NCP retina on its power supply can provide valuable global information on the observed scene. More generally, it yields an appealing solution to the generic output problem affecting artificial retinas.
