Sensata Technologies' CMOS-based Avocet image sensor comes in monochrome, RGB, and RGBi versions and enhances the wide dynamic range Autobrite technology to provide a dynamic range up to 154 dB. This renders clear images in both bright and low-light conditions. The technology is valuable for vehicle alert and avoidance systems such as night vision, lane departure warning, collision mitigation, blind spot monitoring, and enhanced backup displays. Its use in backup cameras will allow drivers to see pedestrians normally obscured when silhouetted by bright sun or hidden in shadows. Advanced driver assistance systems can use the system to readily distinguish objects of dramatically varying light intensity within the same image. The technology is offered in three configurations: a complete single-box solution, standard video camera for two-box solutions, or as an imaging module for engineers building their own camera.
