Welcome to the web page for the VISion SensOR (VISOR) research group at York University.

We design and fabricate single-chip electronic cameras, such as CMOS Active Pixel Sensors (APS). We use a combination of system and device level design to develop innovative cameras for a wide range of applications, including space systems, industrial inspection, machine vision, and vision rehabilitation. Details are to be found in our publications.

Design and testing of the fabricated cameras is performed in-house by the group members. Access to fabrication services are provided by the CMC Microsystems. Details of the CAD software can be found here and we are a member of various vendors’ university programs.

The VISOR Lab is directed by Richard Hornsey, is part of York's Centre for Vision Research and is based in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
