Software update in Canary Islands

Post by lior » Mon Aug 09, 2004 6:03 am

Few months ago, we implemented an algorithm for automatic luminance changes in Canary Islands CONCAM. The main problem with the algorithm that cosmic rays gave too much noise. Recently, a new fuzzy-logic based algorithm for cosmic rays detection has been implemented. It is not fully optimized yet, but most of the cosmic rays hits are now ignored, what gives us a much better signal-to-noise ratio.
