Trixsy - The card finding magic robot

Trixsy thrusts out its finger at the exactly correct moment as the cards are riffled past its finger. Check out Trixy - the card finding magic robot video. Trixsy was developed by Tobi Delbruck, visiting CSC student Shasha Guo and PhD students Min Liu and Yuhuang Hu. Thanks for filming to Joao Sacramento and Johannes Oswald.

Congratulations to Enea

Bias generator self-calibration video

Congrats to NSC masters student Zhenming Yu for publishing his work with Tobi that finally completes the work on the self-calibrating bias generators included on the 2015 fabrication of SEEBETTER DAVIS event cameras. Check out the video and poster in this news item by reading further. This news items was blogged in Vladimir Koifman's image-sensors-world. Read more …

DDD20 DAVIS event camera driving dataset

It's finally available! We are proud that our DDD20 paper was accepted to the Intelligent Transportation Systems Conference. Check out the DDD20 website and arxiv prepublication for lots of cool information about this unique end-to-end event camera dataset. Now we added the full ITSC talk on DDD20. This paper shows that fusing events with frames produces higher steering prediction than either modality alone. By sharp contrast to previous results, the DVS events supplement the APS frames, which are by themselves somewhat better than DVS frames for predicting steering. Congratulation to PhD student Yuhuang Hu for this useful contribution to the research community.
