Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Florida

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO94T003
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

Using a new discrete Gabor filter in a parallel architecture, extraction of edges, motion, and binocular disparity will be efficiently done. We coined the term "Silicon Cortex" for this architecture because its structure and function strongly resemble that of the visual cortex. The Silicon Cortex will significantly improve processing speed and w...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1994
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

EFFICIENT SENSORY PERCEPTION AND PROCESSING ARE CRUCIAL TO MOBILE ROBOT NAVIGATION. AS SENSOR TECHNOLOGY ADVANCES, CONVENTIONAL PROCESSING METHODS BOTTLENECK, CRIPPLING REAL TIME OPERATION. RESEARCHERS HAVE RECENTLY DEVELOPED A LOW-COST LIDAR SYSTEM CAPABLE OF GENERATING 10,000 SAMPLES PER SECOND, CHALLENGING SENSOR DATA PROCESSING RATES. THI...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 92-2
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92
PI: Unavailable

THIS PROJECT IS ADDRESSING THE DESIGN OF A NEW BINOCULAR, STEREO, ROBOTIC VISION SYSTEM THAT IS THREE ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE MORE EFFICIENT AND COMPACT THAN CURRENT CONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS. THE NEW APPROACH IS BASED ON LOG-POLAR COORDINATE, IMAGE-PLANE SENSOR ARRAYS RATHER THAN CONVENTIONAL, CARTESIAN-COORDINATE-BASED ARRAYS. SIGNIFICANT REDUCTIONS IN...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1992
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92

LOG-POLAR COORDINATES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN SHOWN TO POSSESS SIGNIFICANT COMPUTATIONAL ADVANTAGES OVER TRADITIONAL CARTESIAN COORDINATES IN EXPRESSING TRANSFORMATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH DYNAMIC 3-D PERSPECTIVE IMAGERY. REDUCED PIXEL COUNT AND REDUCTION IN CALCULATIONS PER PIXEL SUGGEST THE FEASIBILITY OF COMPACT, HIGH-PERFORMANCE SYSTEMS NOT POSSIBLE ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1992
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92
PI: Unavailable

TELEROBOTICS CAN BE USED IN NUCLEAR POWERPLANTS FOR INSPECTION, MONITORING, AND MAINTENANCE IN ORDER TO IMPROVE WORKER SAFETY, TO REDUCE SHUTDOWN TIME, AND TO REDUCE OPERATION COSTS. IMPROVED VEHICLE MANEUVERABILITY OVER CURRENT DESIGNS WILL BE REQUIRED TO ALLOW ACCESS TO MANY POTENTIAL WORK SITES; THIS WILL REMAIN TRUE EVEN WITH THE NEXT GENERA...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 91-1
Budget: 01/01/91 - 12/31/91
PI: Unavailable

PROTOTYPE HARDWARE WILL BE DESIGNED FOR EXECUTING THE LOG-HOUGH TRANSFORM ON IMAGERY AT VIDEO FRAME RATES. THIS RECENTLY DEVELOPED TRANSFORM IS THREE ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE MORE EFFICIENT THAN THE TRADITIONAL CARTESIAN HOUGH TRANSFORM, AND IS A POWERFUL TECHNIQUE FOR IDENTIFYING ROBUSTLY EXTENDED LINEAR FEATURES DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF GAPS AND NOI...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A88-123
Budget: 07/09/90 - 10/09/92

THIS PROJECT PROPOSES DESIGN, FABRICATION, AND DELIVERY TO TACOM OF A VIDEO COMPRESSION/RECONSTRUCTION SYSTEM FOR APPLICATION TO REMOTE DRIVING EXPERIMENTS. THE SYSTEM, WOULD PROVIDE REAL TIME (30 FRAME PER SECOND) COLOR IMAGERY OVER A 100 KILOBAUD DIGITAL CHANNEL. THE ARCHITECTURE WOULD BE SUFFICIENTLY FLEXIBLE TO PERMIT SUBSTITUTION OF ALGOR...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 90-1
Budget: 01/01/90 - 12/31/90

THE SERPENTINE ROBOTIC ARM JOB DESCRIPTION PROMPTS PROPOSING AN ALTERNATIVE EXECUTION THAT MIGHT BE PREFERABLE IN SPACECRAFT ASSEMBLY, TEST AND MAINTENANCE. RATHER THAN HAVE A SERPENTINE ARM, THIS PROPOSAL SUGGESTS A BUILT-UP STRUCTURE TO TRANSPORT THE ROBOTIC ARM TO ITS WORK SITE. PRESUME THAT THE ROBOT INCLUDES A NESTED LIMP MEMBER WHICH CAN B...
