Musca domestica Based Machine Vision Sensor: a Continuing Project

presentation
posted on 21.07.2014, 00:00 by Rob Streeter
Much research on the Musca domestica machine vision sensor has already been conducted at the University of Wyoming. This on-going project is working to increase the capabilities and the ruggedness of the sensor, and characterize the sensor behavior. The sensor illustrates a number of superior qualities when compared to standard vision sensors. I worked to implement light filtering techniques and long-range sensing capabilities. The light filtering seeks to remove ambient light and reduce noise in the sensor signal. This design was tested and works very well. The long-range objective tests seek to verify sensor function through a telescope. Further tests will be required to provide conclusive long-range data. My research led to a better sensor platform, and utilized advanced, time-saving assembly techniques. This continuing project allows for graduate research upon the completion of my undergraduate degree in May 2011. My contribution to the project was beneficial and ground-breaking, however the project is far from completion and future involvement would only aid more.
