Image recognition processor

  • 04-Mar-2016 09:37 EST

The TMPV7602XBG image recognition processor from Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. is suitable for monocular cameras used in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and will help designers implement ADAS applications using a cost-optimized camera system with a small form factor. Featuring 13 hardware-based image recognition accelerators, the TMPV7602XBG incorporates ADAS features that will become part of the camera requirements for the European New Car Assessment Program in 2018. These include autonomous emergency braking, traffic signal recognition, lane departure warning / lane keeping assist, high beam assistance, and forward collision warning. In addition, the processor supports such new applications as traffic light recognition and night-time pedestrian detection. ADAS applications are processed concurrently within a typical time window of 50 ms inside the image recognition processor and with relatively low power consumption due to the purpose-built hardware accelerators and media processing units. The processor integrates new, enhanced accelerators that provide higher image recognition accuracy than previous Toshiba devices, particularly in low-light and night-time conditions.
