Abstract
An analog VLSI computational vision sensor detects an optical image of multiple intensity?oded objects. As the image is being sensed, the sensor computes and reports the area and the x,y location of the object on three analog pins. A 43x43 cell prototype is implemented in 2um CMOS technology. Each cell/pixel is 47x47um with a 30% fill factor.
