Title (EN) MONOLITHIC IMAGE PERCEPTION DEVICE AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PERCEPTION D'IMAGE MONOLITHIQUE ET PROCEDE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus which can acquire, readout and perceive a scene based on the insertion, or etching of photosensitive elements into or on a transparent or semi-transparent substrate such as glass. The substrate itself acts as the optical device which deflects the photons incident to the reflected image into the photosensitive elements. Photosensitive elements are interconnected together by a transparent or opaque wiring. A digital neural memory can be trained to recognize specific scenery such as a human face, an incoming object, a surface defect, rain drops on a windshield and more. Other applications include image-perceptive car headlight and flat panel display detecting and identifying the viewer's behavior (gaze tracking, face recognition, facial expression recognition and more). Yet another application includes sliding doors perceiving the direction and speed of an individual coming towards that door. Yet another application includes permanent damage detection (texture change) in dam, bridge or other manmade construction.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif capable d'acquérir, d'extraire, et de percevoir une scène, ce dispositif étant composé d'éléments photosensibles insérés ou gravés dans ou sur un substrat transparent ou semi-transparent tel que le verre. Le substrat lui-même joue le rôle d'un dispositif optique qui dévie les photons incidents à l'image réfléchie pour les diriger dans les éléments photosensibles. Les éléments photosensibles sont interconnectés mutuellement par un câblage transparent ou opaque. Une mémoire neuronale peut être entraînée à reconnaître des scènes spécifiques telles qu'un visage humain, un objet entrant, un défaut de surface, des gouttes de pluie sur un pare-brise etc. D'autres applications comprennent des phares d'automobiles à reconnaissance d'image, des écrans plats qui détectent et identifient le comportement de l'utilisateur (détection du regard, reconnaissance du visage, reconnaissance de l'expression faciale etc.). Les application peuvent encore comprendre des portes coulissantes reconnaissant la direction et la vitesse d'un individu se dirigeant vers cette porte, ou encore la détection d'un dégât permanent (modification de texture) dans une digue, un pont ou une autre construction artificielle.
