A Salient Information Processing System for Bionic Eye with Application to Obstacle Avoidance

Stacey, Ashley; LI, Yi; Barnes, Nick


In this paper we present a visual processing system for bionic eye with a focus on obstacle avoidance. Bionic eye aims at restoring the sense of vision to people living with blindness and low vision. However, current hardware implant technology limits the image resolution of the electrical stimulation device to be very low (e.g., 100 electrode arrays, which is approx. 12 × 9 pixels). Therefore, we need a visual processing unit that extracts salient information in an unknown environment for...[Show more]
