Miniature Curved Artificial Compound Eye (CurvACE)

Features a panoramic, hemispherical field of view with a resolution identical to that of the fruit fly.

The artificial compound eye possesses embedded and programmable vision processing, which allows customizable integration in a broad range of applications where motion detection is important, such as mobile (micro)robots/micro air vehicles (MAVs), home automation, surveillance, medical instruments, prosthetic devices, and smart clothing.
