Conventional image sensors suffer from significant limitations: they acquire visual information as a series of ‘snapshots’ recorded at a fixed frame rate which has no relation to the dynamics of the scene and regardless of whether this information has changed over time. This acquisition method causes information loss and leads to redundancy in the recorded image data, leading to more and more resources and power-hungry processing.
Chronocam’s innovative vision sensors and systems replicate the functioning of the human eye. This allows them to address the limitations of conventional vision sensors by enabling real time sensing of the relevant dynamic scene context and acquiring only what is necessary. The result is that Chronocam's vision solutions set a new benchmark for computer vision performance with unprecedented speed, dynamic range, sensor level video compression and power efficiency at the same time.
Chronocam’s computer vision solutions combine speed (100x faster), data efficiency (100x less data) and wide dynamic range (100x larger) compared to state-of-the-art. This unique combination of performance features makes Chronocam’s technology applicable to all fields of computer vision from aerospace, automotive and robotics, to smart devices and IoT.
