Prophesee is the inventor of the world’s most advanced neuromorphic vision systems

bio inspired


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 machine vision systems open new potential in areas such as autonomous vehicles, industrial automation, IoT, security and surveillance, 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 paradigm shift in computer visionevent-based vision.

FRAME-BASED: A conventional camera takes an arbitrary number of frames 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), each pixel is independent and only records when it senses 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.
