What is IU by the way?

English translation:The visual system is once again driven [or "controlled"] by the IU
Explanation:
One possible expansion of "IU" in this context is "independent user" (see the first web site below); however, I suspect the true answer is probably "imaging unit".

There is another expansion which, although not the right answer here, is still worth bearing in mind purely for background information: "Image Understanding (IU) is important... due to the information which it can autonomously provide regarding the contents of the scenes/environment imaged by the sensor(s). IU is a broad category of vision algorithms and applications. Some of the obviously useful IU algorithms include object recognition and image segmentation, which are key components in obtaining the location and configuration of enemy installations and equipment..."
