In recent years, advances in CMOS imagers and AI have rapidly expanded the application fields of image processing. Spatial resolution, sensitivity, dynamic range, etc. for devices have dramatically improved, while various recognition functions have been implemented with the introduction of learning-based information processing, making progress day by day. However, the temporal resolution or temporal dynamics of an image has been limited to the video rate level of processing, because image processing has been required to realize the functions of the human eye. In the case of processing for high-speed moving objects or controlling machine dynamics as machine eyes, rather than processing in the range visible to the human eye, high-speed vision, i.e., high-speed image processing in a bandwidth that covers the dynamics of the object, and a system that utilizes such processing, are required. This special issue summarizes such advanced research on high-speed vision, highlighting its current status and future development in the areas of devices, systems, and application developments.

High-speed vision has entered a new era, as the basic technology and various applications have been developed and new functions are being added one after another. We hope that this timely special issue will help its readers grasp this major technological trend and create new system values.
