About me
Centeye Engineer
What are your interests related to embedded eyes / vision?
I've been an engineer at Centeye since December of 2008. My primary focus has been achieving Hover-In-Place (HIP) capability with a Blade mCX helicopter system and a flexible ring of 8 vision sensors. I've also designed the current 8-bit and 32-bit sensor systems.
Tell us about your technical background
*Bachelors of Electrical Engineering 2007, UMCP
*Currently working on Masters of Electrical Engineering, UMCP
*Centeye employee since December 2008
Technical interest
optics, image sensor chips, vision hardware, image processing, ground robotics, airborne robotics, sensor networks

WFOV 6-DOF Vision System for Optical Flow Odometry using ArduEye and Arduino


As a participant in the Harvard University Robobees Project, our primary task at Centeye is to develop a vision sensor system that will fit into a small flying robot about 2cm in size. The target weight budget for the vision system is 25 milligrams. While we still have a ways to go before achieving this, we…

CYE32 Features Video

In an earlier post, I shared plans for a CYE32 vision sensor based around the AT32UC3B1256 microcontroller.  After working with this vision sensor for a couple months, it has become a useful platform for trying out new vision chips and new image processing algorithms. 


I put together a short video that shows off some of the features of the CYE32,…

Introducing the new CYE32 open source sensors

Hello Everyone,

Below I've posted layouts of the new CYE32 open source sensors, based around the Atmel at32uc3b1256 32-bit microcontroller.  The CYE32 line offers a significant performance increase over the CYE8 line of sensors, features an external 12-bit ADC, and uses the same microcontroller that we are using in the vision-based hover-in-place demos…

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena0022@yahoo.com.hk ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
