Frame synchronization of high-speed vision sensors with respect to temporally encoded illumination in highly dynamic environments.

Hou L, Kagami S, Hashimoto K - Sensors (Basel) (2013)

Bottom Line: Based on signal normalization, Manchester Encoded reference signals carry temporal information owing to serial communication and thus can timestamp the output vision frame.Both simulated and experimental results show satisfactory robustness to various disturbances, such as dynamic targets, fluctuant optical intensity, and unfixed cameras, etc.This result is believed to be applicable to low-cost wireless vision sensor network.

ABSTRACT
The authors propose a Manchester Encoding inspired illumination modulation strategy to properly index the temporally-aligned vision frames, which are successfully synchronized by the LED reference signal. Based on signal normalization, Manchester Encoded reference signals carry temporal information owing to serial communication and thus can timestamp the output vision frame. Both simulated and experimental results show satisfactory robustness to various disturbances, such as dynamic targets, fluctuant optical intensity, and unfixed cameras, etc. The 1,000 Hz vision sensor is locked to 500 Hz temporally modulated LED illumination with only 24 μs jitters. This result is believed to be applicable to low-cost wireless vision sensor network.

f14-sensors-13-04102: Peak-to-peak jitters of the output signal to index 170, 24 μs.

Mentions: With regard to the introduction in Section 5.1, the Manchester Encoded indexes were tested for feasibility. Figure 14 and Figure 15 show the successfully synchronized results of the index 170. The blue signal is the reference illumination signal recorded and exported from the oscilloscope and is plotted out by MATLAB. The red signal is the output vision frame signal exported from the oscilloscope in the same experiment and is plotted by MATLAB.
