The Bi-i standalone cellular vision system is introduced and discussed. In the first part, the underlying sensor and system level architectures are presented and various implementations are overviewed. This computing platform consists of state-of-the-art sensing, cellular-sensing-processing, digital signal processing and communication devices that make it possible to use the system as an ideal computing platform for combined topographic and non-topographic calculations in sensing-processing-actuation scenarios. In the second part of the paper, ultra-high frame rate laboratory experiments are shown and discussed to highlight the most peculiar features of the system and its applicability in various industrial quality control areas. The overview underlines the potentials of the Bi-i vision system for unmanned intelligent vehicle applications in visual exploration, identification, tracking and navigation.
