  • Publication number: 20210081669
    Abstract: A method for identifying and/or tracking objects in a spatial area. The method includes observing the area with the aid of at least one event-based sensor, the event-based sensor including light-sensitive pixels, and a relative change of the light intensity incident upon a pixel by at least a predefined percentage prompting the sensor to output an event assigned to this pixel. The method further includes, in response to the sensor, outputting a new event, ascertaining an assessment for this event which is a measure of the extent to which this event matches an already detected distribution of events, and/or of the extent to which it is plausible that the event stems from an already detected object; and in response to the ascertained assessment meeting a predefined criterion, assigning the new event to the already detected distribution, or the already detected object.

  • Publication number: 20210064995
    Abstract: A method for creating a pulsed neural network (Spiking Neural Network). The method begins with an assignment of a predefinable control pattern (rollout pattern) to a deep neural network. This is followed by a training of the deep neural network using the control pattern. This is followed by a conversion of the deep neural network into the pulsed neural network, the connections of the pulsed neural network being assigned a delay, in each case as a function of the control pattern. A computer program, a device for carrying out the method, and to a machine-readable memory element are also described.
