AVSS 2018 Workshop on Smart Image Sensor Systems

AVSS 2018 Workshop on Smart Image Sensor Systems


Smart image sensor systems that integrate sensing, computation, and memory are the next generation of smart cameras. Traditional smart cameras combine traditional sensors and embedded computing systems-on-chips to perform in-camera analysis. Smart sensor systems may combine analog and digital computation with the sensor, resulting in significantly lower latency computations as well as smaller SWaP (size, weight, and power). The novel architectures presented by smart image sensors call for a new round of algorithm/architecture co-design to leverage the capabilities of these systems.

Potential topics include:

  • Analog and mixed-signal on-sensor computation.
  • Digital on-sensor computation.
  • 3D VLSI architectures for smart image sensors.
  • Computer vision applications (tracking, target identification, etc.) adapted to a chosen smart sensor platform.
  • Algorithm-architecture co-design for smart sensor systems.
  • Simulation studies of smart sensor systems.
  • Applications and use cases for smart sensor systems.
  • Distributed networks of smart image sensors.
  • Tutorials on smart image sensors.
