METAVISION® SENSOR, PACKAGED

Prophesee third generation Metavision® sensor, is now available in an industry-standard package. For the first time, Event-Based Vision’s light and efficient integration into existing system is made possible. 

640×480 VGA Event-Based sensor

Package: 13×15 mm mini PBGA

PIXEL INTELLIGENCE

Bringing intelligence to the very edge

Inspired by the human retina, at the heart of Prophesee patented Event-Based Metavision sensors, each pixel embeds its own intelligence processing enabling them to activate themselves independently, triggering events.

SPEED

>10k fps Time-Resolution Equivalent

There is no framerate tradeoff anymore. Take full advantage of events over frames and reveal the invisible hidden in hyper fast and fleeting scene dynamics.

 

DYNAMIC RANGE

>120dB Dynamic Range

Achieve high robustness even in extreme lighting conditions. With Metavision sensors you can now perfectly see details from pitch dark to blinding brightness in one same scene, at any speed.

LOW LIGHT

0.08 lx Low-Light Cutoff

Sometimes the darkest areas hold the clearest insights. Metavision enables you to see events where light almost does not exist, down to 0.08 lx.

DATA EFFICIENCY

 10 to 1000x less data

With each pixel only reporting when it senses movement, Metavision sensors generate on average 10 to 1000x less data than traditional image-based ones.

POWER EFFICIENCY

3nW/event

The Metavision sensor’s pixel independence and overall architecture enable new levels of power efficiency with just 3nW/event and 26mW at sensor level. 

BUILT FOR THE INDUSTRY 4.0 REVOLUTION

A new category of Machine Vision to unlock a new performance dimension in speed, precision and endurance for Ultra-High Speed counting, Vibration Measurement, Kinematic Monitoring and more.

>1000 Obj/s.

BETWEEN THE FRAMES

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 Metavision sensor purchase 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.
