event-based camera inspired by how the retina processes light was introduced in
2008 . Unlike a conventional frame-based camera, each pixel in event-based
cameras reports changes in brightness only as they occur, using events, and
stays silent otherwise. A similar concept has also been adopted in physiological
signals with high sparsity, e.g., membrane potential . The event encoding
can be implemented with an event-based ADC, e.g., a level-crossing ADC which
produces a positive event when crossing one contrast step with rising slope,
and a negative event with falling slope. This event-based approach can achieve
>1000× higher compression ratio than the existing approach while preserving
same waveform features. When this event-based system adopts an “event-driven” transmission,
e.g., asynchronous impulse-radio UWB, the transmission energy can be
significantly reduced .
