An energy-autonomous vision system is a system which is capable of sensing and describing the visual world it observes.It is powered with the energy which is harvested from the surrounding environment and communicates wirelessly with a base-station.

EnerViS project aims at studying and developing a prototype of a battery-operated, ultra-low power vision system targeted to people monitoring applications.

It will be the first building block for an energy-autonomous vision system.

Goals: 

The objective of the proposed project is the study and the development of a novel vision system, capable of sensing and describing the visual world it observes under physical constraints that include ultra-low power consumption, low maintenance cost and a small unobtrusive form-factor.
