This workshop is dedicated to event-based cameras, smart cameras and algorithms. Event-based cameras are revolutionary vision sensors with three key advantages: a measurement rate that is almost 1 million times faster than standard cameras, a latency of microseconds, and a dynamic range that is eight orders of magnitude larger than that of standard cameras. Because of these advantages, event-based cameras open frontiers that are unthinkable with standard cameras (which have been the main sensing technology of the past 60 years). These revolutionary sensors enable the design of a new class of algorithms to track a baseball in the moonlight, build a flying robot with the same agility of a fly, and doing structure from motion in challenging lighting conditions and at remarkable speeds. These sensors became commercially available in 2008 and are slowly being adopted in computer vision and robotics. They have covered the main news in recent years, with event-camera company Prophesee receiving $40 million in investment from Intel and Bosch, and Samsung announcing mass production as well its use in combination with IBM TrueNorth processor to recognize human gestures. Cellular processor arrays (CPAs), such as the SCAMP sensor, are novel sensors in which each pixel has a programmable processor, thus they yield massively parallel processing near the image plane. Unlike a conventional image sensor, the SCAMP does not output raw images, but rather the results of on-sensor computations, for instance a feature map or optic flow map. Because early vision computations are carried out entirely on-sensor, the resulting system has high speed and low-power consumption, enabling new embedded vision applications in areas such as robotics, AR/VR, automotive, gaming, surveillance, etc. This workshop will cover the sensing hardware, as well as the processing and learning methods needed to take advantage of the above-mentioned novel cameras.
