Abstract

In this paper, we describe the current version of the artificial retina prosthesis and cortical implant that we are developing. This research project will require significant advances in a variety of disciplines. We have assembled a multidisciplinary team of researchers in Ophthalmology, Neurosurgery, Computer Networking, VLSI, and Sensors to develop the novel solutions needed to make artificial vision for the visually-impaired a reality. This paper describes the novel approach that we have adopted to providing a complete system for restoring vision to visually-impaired persons - from the signals generated by an external camera to an array of sensors that electrically stimulate the retina via a wireless interface.
