Dynamic Event-based Optical Identification and Communication

by   Axel von Arnim, et al.

Optical identification is often done with spatial or temporal visual pattern recognition and localization. Temporal pattern recognition, depending on the technology, involves a trade-off between communication frequency, range and accurate tracking. We propose a solution with light-emitting beacons that improves this trade-off by exploiting fast event-based cameras and, for tracking, sparse neuromorphic optical flow computed with spiking neurons. In an asset monitoring use case, we demonstrate that the system, embedded in a simulated drone, is robust to relative movements and enables simultaneous communication with, and tracking of, multiple moving beacons. Finally, in a hardware lab prototype, we achieve state-of-the-art optical camera communication frequencies in the kHz magnitude.
