In this paper we present a new scheme for instrumentation, which has been
inspired by the way small mammals sense their environment. We call this scheme
Application Specific Instrumentation (ASIN). A conventional instrumentation
system focuses on gathering as much information about the scene as possible.
This, usually, is a generic system whose data can be used by another system to
take a specific action. ASIN fuses these two steps into one. The major merit of
the proposed scheme is that it uses low resolution sensors and much less
computational overhead to give good performance for a highly specialised
