OmniVision Technologies announced two automotive image sensors with 8.3-megapixel resolution that will be helpful in accurately detecting people and objects from far away in all levels of light.
Advances in front-view image sensors are considered critical in the evolution of autonomous vehicles and vehicle safety.
One of the sensors has an on-chip algorithm for HDR and LED flicker mitigation. Both have what is considered the industry’s best high-def resolution at 8.3 megapixels.
Research firm Yole Développement has calculated an annual growth rate for viewing and ADAS applications in imaging will be nearly 14% until 2024.
On-chip integration of HDR and LED flicker mitigation should reduce overall build of materials costs while offering a high level of performance in a compact package, noted Yole analyst Pierre Cambou.
Omnivision relied on 3D stacking technology for the integration technique.
The two sensors use the same camera signal for ADAS and autonomous machine vision while feeding into the dash cam display and recording systems.
