125 milligram optical flow sensor "TinyTam"













As an exercise in size reduction, we have prototyped a complete optical flow sensor in a 125 milligram and 7mm x 7mm package. This mass includes optics, image sensing, and all processing. Below is a video and two close-up photographs. In the video, note the green vector indicating measured optical flow as a result of image motion.

User programmable sub-gram optical flow / vision sensor





For a long time I've been wanting to make an ultra minimalist vision / optical flow sensor for the hobbyist and experimentalist community. I've been pursuing this as a small IR&D pet project at Centeye. We're almost there.



The above photo shows one of these sensors next to a millimeter scale. The part count is small- One of our 64x64 custom image sensors, an Atmel ATmega644 processor,…
