Overall Objectives

Vision is a key function to sense the world and perform complex tasks, with a high sensitivity and a strong reliability, given the fact that most of its input is noisy, changing and ambiguous. Better understanding biological vision will have a strong scientific, medical, societal and technological impact in the near future. In this context, Biovision aims at developing fundamental research as well as technological transfer along two axes:

  1. Axis 1 focuses on the development of high tech vision aid systems for low vision patients.

  2. Axis 2 focuses on the precise modeling of the visual system for normal and distrophic conditions, targeting applications for low vision and blind patients.

These axes are developed in strong synergy, involving a large network of national and international collaborators with neuroscientists, physicians, and modellers.
