Micro-drones can use this chip to navigate, especially in remote and difficult-to-reach locations. In addition, small robots or devices that need long-term operation can also benefit from the energy-saving features of the new chip.
MITIt said that the chip can process 171 frames of camera images per second in real time. In contrast, the Dhan Phantom 3's camera frame rate is only 30fps. In addition, it can use inertia to measure its position in space.
It is reported that researchers will exchange and introduce this chip with the world's top technical experts at the Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits held this week.
