Human Vision Component (HVC) from Omron Corp. is a new image sensing component that can be embedded in a variety of devices and equipment. It incorporates 10 algorithms from OKAO Vision and a camera module into a compact configuration. OKAO Vision is Omron’s image sensing technology capable of recognizing the intentions and conditions of people through face recognition, estimation of facial expressions, age estimation, gaze estimation, hand detection, and other functions. According to the company, image analysis technology targeting human faces and motions has been incorporated into more and more types of equipment—an example of which is cars that prevent drowsy or inattentive driving by recognizing signs of fatigue in the driver’s face. Launch of the standard-type HVC is scheduled for December; from next year onward Omron plans to introduce a succession of application-specific HVC products.
