CMOS image sensor

  • 03-Oct-2008 04:33 EDT

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.

Focused on the near-term safety-improvement potential underlying autonomous-driving technology, Toyota - counter to much of the auto industry - sees real promise in developing SAE Level 2-3 systems.
Connectivity spawns need for security designed-in from the beginning, a complex issue that spans many disciplines.
If there’s any doubt that connectivity is the next wave for advanced features and functions, it should dissipate after CES 2017. A multitude of advances in over the air updates and security will be shown in Las Vegas in January, setting the stage for much of the auto industry’s technology rollouts throughout the year.
Emerging markets and technologies are both creating openings for Taiwanese suppliers. China’s burgeoning automotive market is a primary target for companies that focus on OEM sales, while emerging technologies like LEDs and head-up displays (HUD) are also providing opportunities.
