Electronic Engineering Honours Project

This is my honours project from 1998, completed as part of my BE. at the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Western Australia. The project involved designing and simulating an electronic retina for detecting edges and motion. My supervisor was Greg Crebbin.

I was pretty pleased with the results, which delivered on the objective of "improving on existing systems". Still, it wasn't exactly a breakthrough in the field of machine vision, and advances in more conventional digital processing have overshadowed this kind of work.

You can read the final thesis online, either by downloading the postscript version, or by viewing the HTML version, which unfortunately contains many rendering errors in the images (it was made using latex2html). You can also download the whole project in a zip file. This contains:
