New eye for ICub

The new eye of the neuromorphic iCub is ready and at work! It features two cameras in each eye: one large field of view ED sensor (ATIS) and one 1.3Mpixels traditional camera from OnSemiconductor

Ball Tracking @ IROS 2016 finalist of RoboCup Best Paper Award

The fast temporal-dynamics and intrinsic motion segmentation of event-based cameras are beneficial for robotic tasks that require low-latency visual tracking and control, for example a robot catching a ball. When the event-driven iCub humanoid robot grasps an object its head and torso move, inducing camera motion, and tracked objects become no longer trivially segmented amongst the mass of background clutter.
