On the Application of Quanta Imaging Acquisition to Spiking Luminance Sensors R.J. Méndez-Romero, J.A. Leñero-Bardallo and A. Rodríguez-Vázquez Conference · IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems ISCAS 2022 abstract
Spiking luminance asynchronous sensors are image sensors whose pixels spike asynchronously and autonomously with a frequency proportional to illumination. They can render images with low latency, high dynamic range, and low power consumption. However, one of their drawbacks is the operation under high illumination or with large pixel arrays that can easily saturate their asynchronous readout logic. In this article, the novel quanta imaging acquisition technique is evaluated to alleviate this limitation. Simulation and experimental results demonstrate that the technique is easy to implement. It also reduces the data throughput, keeping acceptable image quality.
