VCS-IV: Real-time Visual Processing System using a Vision Chip

Summary

We developed a new real-time visual processing system using a programmable vision chip. This system features new functions such as sensor characteristics control, and also it is implemented to be more compact, faster system.

The components below are implemented to 76mm x 76mm boards. The boards are stacked and used as required for extensibility.
