Research Focus

The International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems is tackling internationally looming questions and escalating problems.

We are currently focused on investigating:

We are world leaders in silicon cochlea designs for audition. In partnership with the Royal Australian Airforce and the Defence Innovation Hub we are developing novel event-based image sensors. We are also developing novel tactile sensors.
Tracking satellites, space junk, and other low-earth-orbit objects is vital for identifying hazards to in orbit and ground infrastructure. Partnering with Defence, ICNS has proven that we can achieve measurements that cannot be done with other available technology, such as: observation of the International Space Station from a ground-based telescope during bright daylight; using a neuromorphic camera on a satellite to look at space junk and integrating this camera on a satellite developed by UNSW Canberra; determination of the theoretical capabilities and limits of event-based sensors for SSA, and their application to Adaptive Optics.
Processing the data from the sensors requires novel algorithms. ICNS has been highly successful in the design of these algorithms, in particular for event-based processing of vision and audio.
Wherever we can, we support Reproducible Research and provide data bases and software code that support our Publications.
