In a recent work, an interleaved sensor that parallels the human retina was proposed to enhance the capabilities to acquire images under very different lighting conditions. We present an implementation of that interleaved sensor based on the new transverse field detector, a CMOS photosensitive device for imaging applications that perform color detection without color filters. This implementation adds some advantages of the filterless detector in terms of color acquisition and spatial resolution in very high or very low lighting conditions. It also adds the flexibility to electronically reconfigure the interleaved sensor pattern, adapting it to the present light conditions.
