First in-sensor processor could be integrated into commercial silicon imaging sensor chips

Researchers at Harvard SEAS developed the first in-sensor processor that could be integrated into commercial silicon imaging sensor chips which are used in nearly all commercial devices that need to capture visual information, including smartphones. The array (illustrated here) simplifies image processing for autonomous vehicles and other applications.
