About.

ULPEC is a research project funded under the action “Smart System Integration” (SSI) of the European Commission Horizon 2020 framework programme.

Starting in January 2017 and led by the University of Bordeaux (IMS laboratory), ULPEC brings together eight European groups working in the fields of microelectronics, materials, modelling and simulations.

The long term goal of ULPEC is to develop advanced vision applications with ultra-low power requirements and ultra-low latency.

The output of the ULPEC project is a demonstrator connecting a neuromorphic event-based camera to a high speed ultra-low power consumption asynchronous visual data processing system (Spiking Neural Network with memristive synapses).

This brain-inspired technology should then be used for cases such as the vision and recognition of traffic events (signs, obstacles like other cars, persons, etc.) which is a major challenge for autonomous and computer assisted driving in the transport and car manufacturing sector.

Beyond the field of transportation, the long-term aim of the project is to cater for all advanced vision applications with ultra-low power requirements and latency, as well as for data processing in hardware native neural networks.

By providing an innovative and polyvalent solution for embedded vision systems, ULPEC technology will lead the way for the future of memristive neuromorphic systems.” (Dr Sylvain Saïghi, Project Investigator for ULPEC)
