FRAME-BASED VISION

In a traditional frame-based sensor, the whole sensor array is triggered at a pre-defined rhythm, regardless of the actual scene’s dynamics.

This leads to the acquisition of large volumes of raw, undersampled or redundant, data.

EVENT-BASED VISION

 In Prophesee’s patented Event-Based sensor, each pixel intelligently activates itself depending on the contrast change (movement) it detects. 

This enables the acquisition of only essential motion information, continuously. There is no framerate anymore.

On the LEFT, a simulation of Frame-Based Vision running at 10fps. This approach leverages traditional cinema techniques and records a succession of static images to represent movement. Between these images, there is nothing, the system is blind by design.

On the RIGHT, the same scene recorded using Event-Based Vision. There is no gap between the frames, because there are no frames anymore. Instead, a continuous stream of essential information dynamically driven by movement, pixel by pixel.

This drastically reduces the power, latency and data processing requirements imposed by traditional frame-based systems.

ADVANCED TOOLKIT

With sensor purchases comes a complementary access to an advanced toolkit composed of an Online Portal, Drivers, data Player and SDK.

We are sharing an advanced toolkit so you can start building your own vision.

KNOWLEDGE CENTER

Gain access to PROPHESEE Knowledge Center. A portal gathering all the essential resources to learn and use Event-Based Vision to its full potential.

PROPHESEE PLAYER

An interface to record sequences and visualize event data.

PROPHESEE DRIVER

Drivers to interface with the sensor and conduct initial configurations.

METAVISION SDK

A software library of application level algorithms, C++ binaries. Contains 3 applications: tracking, high-speed counting, and vibration measurement.
