We have been developing a VLSI device called vision chip in which photo detectors are integrated with paralled processing elements and that realizes high speed robot control using visual feedback. Using a 0.35μm CMOS process, we have developed a 16 × 16 prototype chip and have demonstrated some image acquiring and processing experiments. A vision system which includes the vision chip has also been constructed.
