Prophesee is the inventor of the world’s most advanced neuromorphic vision systems
Inspired by human vision, Prophesee’s technology uses a patented sensor design and AI algorithms that mimic the eye and brain to reveal what was invisible until now using standard frame-based technology.
Prophesee’s computer vision systems open new potential in areas such as autonomous vehicles, industrial automation, IoT, mobile and AR/VR. One early application was in medical devices that restore vision to the blind.
Prophesee’s technology is fundamentally different from the traditional image sensors – it introduces a new computer vision category: event-based vision.
THE END OF FRAMES
FRAME-BASED: A conventional camera takes an arbitrary number of pictures per second, usually around 30 fps, in which all pixels record in synchrony regardless of what is going on in the scene.
EVENT-BASED: In Prophesee Metavision® patented sensor (discover our Evaluation Kits), there is a new kind of pixel. Each of them is powered by its own independent intelligent processing. This allows them to only records when they sense a change or movement. The information created does not arrive frame by frame. Rather, movement is captured as a continuous stream of information.
Prophesee sees between the frames, where all traditional frame-based systems are blind.
10 – 1000x
Less data than conventional sensors
Enabling new levels of power efficiency
Prophesee technology functions like human vision.
Something moving at high speed will be sampled at a high rate. Something that moves slowly will be sampled at a lower rate, and something that does not change, will not be sampled at all. No excess data is created.
This drastically reduces the power, latency and data processing requirements imposed by traditional frame-based systems.
