The project embraces R&D&I of image and vision sensors implemented with vertical integration technologies to address the challenges imposed by the AI systems in several application scenarios that require miniaturized sensors with very low power consumption. We focus on the automotive, IoT, and robotics as possible target application scenarios.
Particularly, three sensors architectures are considered: a) One based on SPADs to gauge the time-of-flight. b) A high dynamic range sensor with event-driven operation and with the same output data format as classic APS sensors. c) A sensor with very low noise and high operation speed.
