Toshiba America Electronic Components’ Visconti2 (TMPV7500) is part of the Visconti series of image recognition processors for automotive applications. The processors recognize lanes, vehicles, and pedestrians using a camera-based vision system. Supporting up to four 1.3-megapixel color cameras, the devices are suitable for applications that require color identification such as the detection of traffic lights and signs. They incorporate four separate media processing engines and up to six image processing accelerators to enhance image recognition performance. Image processing accelerators use the firm's histogram of oriented gradients technology to enable real-time pedestrian detection at both day and night due to the system's ability to sense lighting changes and small deformations.
