Neuromorphic Visual Motion Perception

Tech ID: 25800 / UC Case 2015-970-0

Brief Description

Full Description

This invention is an autonomous visually guided navigation system that mimics how mammals manage obstacle collisions in the real word. This novel system is smaller, lighter, and more energy efficient than the current state of the art.

Suggested uses

Autonomous vehicles, drones, robotics, missile systems, and video games where rapid, smooth, and well planned movements are essential.


• Can respond to more complex motion patterns than existing systems and organize higher-order motion signals more efficiently than existing systems. • Can respond to global or behaviorally relevant patterns of motion, rather than noisy, irrelevant motion components. • Designed to run on neuromorphic hardware, meaning an embedded system that should be more energy efficient, smaller, and lighter. • Can be embedded on a variety of electronic devices and operate at high speeds, while drawing low power • Compatible with any video streaming application. • Designed to take input from neuromorphic sensors and therefore can react to motion within microseconds, several orders of magnitude faster than existing systems.
