Stereo camera RoboVision®3 for ADAS / Autonomous Driving
RoboVision®3 is a stereo camera capable of sensing a maximum measuring distance of 150 m and a horizontal viewing angle of 110 °.
It can be used for the detection of oncoming vehicles from a distance when turning right at the intersection which was difficult in the past and for wide detection of pedestrians and vehicles at the intersection right turn.
The image sensor adopts the newest Sony made high-sensitivity CMOS image sensor IMX390 for automotive use.
Simultaneous processing of HDR and flicker suppression of LED signal is possible, and we can expect significant improvement of recognition and judgment function important for ADAS/Autonomous Driving.
The output corresponds to the parallax image and the point cloud. You can also use it for self-location estimation and motion detection, point recognition, detection of machine learning and deep learning detection results, etc. using point cloud.
About high-sensitivity CMOS image sensor IMX390 for in-vehicle camera
This image sensor has a function of suppressing LED flicker which occurs at the time of photographing LED indicator, traffic light, etc., and HDR function realizing shooting with a wide dynamic range of 120 dB. Commercialization of an image sensor that enabled simultaneous use of LED flicker suppression function and HDR function was the first in the industry, realized by Sony's unique pixel structure and exposure method.
Moreover, due to the high sensitivity characteristics, it is possible to shoot high quality color images even under the environment of low illuminance of 0.1 lux corresponding to the moonlight.
