We compare a traditional CCD imaging sensor with a biomimetic vision sensor (based on Musca domestica, the common house fly) with regard to detecting small moving objects at various speeds and levels of contrast. The patent-pending biomimetic vision sensor described is shown to be capable of reliable object detection in spite of challenging movement and low contrast conditions in which a typical commercial CCD camera sensor failed to properly detect the object.
