Spiking Neuron Network (SNN) has shown advantages in processing event-based data for image classification. However, the classification accuracy of SNNs decreases in noisy environment. The cascade spiking neuron network (cascade-SNN) was proposed to solve this problem in this letter. We used spiking convolutional spiking neuron network (SCNN) for features extraction and liquid state machine (LSM) for read out. Compared with early works on ANNs, this network achieved the state-of-the-art classification accuracy in DVS-CIFAR10 dataset and DVS-Gesture dataset, which are both challenging dataset because of noisy environment. We conducted ablation experiments to verify the proposed structure is effective and analyzed the influence of different hyper-parameters.
