Installing the drivers

  • How to download drivers (and the latest version of jAER Viewer) (SVNTortoise is good for it.) (Download not only drivers by SVN, but all the data from the code folder, you will need them soon.)
  • How to install USB driver. (For WinXP - Don't erase the drivers, Windows sometimes after restart wanna install these drivers again.)
  • Now try to start jAER, if you will see the video from the cam, you are done. If you will have some problem, first try to set the AEChip right (your chip is ...jaer.chip.retina.DVS128), if you will have still some problems, try to load Bias. You have already downloaded Biases by SVN, so go to the directory Biasgen settings and find DVS128 and you will see them. Press CTRL+B in jAER and you will get pop-up with Biases, so make File -> LoadSettings and load DVS128Fast or DVS128Slow (they recommend these on jAER help forum for standard usage). <more about Bias controlling> If you will still have some problem, visit jAER Help Forum or jAER wiki.

Using the jAERViewer

Getting data

For getting data we are using matlab. You can use files uploaded on Dropbox. You have to allow 'Enable unicast diagram (UDP) output' first. Then you can run the MATLAB script (readaeudpstream.m/readaeudpstreamview.m). For the second one, use high buffer size, cause of image analysis.



  • For image analysis use always high buffer size.
  • We were using MATLAB2011b, because version 2012b had some problems with license.


  • We are still not able to handle the camera (camera interface) from MATLAB.
