Georgia State researchers design artificial vision device for microrobots
Researchers at Georgia State University (GSU) have designed an ‘electric eye’ - an artificial vision device – for micro-sized robots.
Through using synthetic methods, the device mimics the biochemical processes that allow for vision in the natural world.
It improves on previous research in terms of colour recognition, a particularly challenging area due to the difficulty of downscaling colour sensing devices. Conventional colour sensors typically consume a large...
