RI-IWEAR and PRI researchers developed retina-like sensors give machines better vision

3 Mar 2022


Inspired by the human retina, Dr Chai Yang and his research teams at RI-IWEAR and PRI developed devices that can perceive objects in a light-intensity range substantially wider than that of state-of-the-art sensors based on silicon. Such instruments could improve the efficiency and reduce the complexity of machine-vision technology.

The research achievement has been published in Nature Electronics and selected as the “Research Highlights” in Nature journal. Please click the following links for details:
