  • Patent number: 7817187
    Abstract: A device that employs a secondary camera for use in image blur correction. The device includes a first camera that acquires a digital image and a second camera that acquires a series of digital images that enable a determination of a motion of the device during acquisition of the digital image. The determined motion may be used to correct an image blur in the digital image acquired with the primary camera.

  • Patent number: 7598979
    Abstract: An imaging device having a lens focusing light from a selected scene within an optical footprint, and a substrate including a primary array and at least one navigation array which are positioned within the optical footprint. The primary array acquires a desired image of a portion of the selected scene during an integration period and the at least one navigation array acquires a series of images during the integration period, including a first and a second image having common features from the selected scene. A correlator determines location differences of the common features of the first and second images relative to the at least one navigation array and provides a displacement signal indicative of imaging device translation in two planar dimensions during an interval between the first and second images based on the location differences.

  • Publication number: 20040212678
    Abstract: A low power motion detection system includes a low-resolution image sensor having a normal mode and a low power consumption sleep mode. The sensor is configured to periodically exit the sleep mode and enter the normal mode, capture a low-resolution image of a scene in the normal mode, and then return to the sleep mode. The system includes a controller for determining whether motion has occurred based on images captured by the sensor.
