Sony's clever image sensor helps autonomous cars see better

Added: 08.05.2017 20:41 | 6 views | 0 comments

Sony has developed a CCD image sensor that can help autonomous cars make sense of electronic road signs and see better when transitioning between dark tunnels and daylight.
The IMX390 sensor has an anti-flicker function that means images of LED road signs come out clear. As LED signs are often used to indicate temporary road conditions or changes in speed limits, it's important for an autonomous car to be able to recognize them.
On a standard sensor, LED signs appear to flicker or have a strobing effect due to a difference in the rate at which the sensor scans every second and the road sign is displayed. A similar problem is sometimes seen when a conventional camera is pointed towards a television set.

Cars will get superior digital vision with ARM's camera chip

Added: 25.04.2017 0:00 | 12 views | 0 comments

Cars are turning into computers with a unique set of requirements.
One of the more important components is a camera, which is a secondary feature in PCs. Cameras are aiding mirrors in allowing cars to self park, and they will serve as the eyes for autonomous cars, helping capture and analyze images.
The number of cameras on cars will only grow as drivers seek a better view of the vehicle's interiors and exteriors. For car makers, the next big goal is to bring context and understanding to those images. Combined with data from radar, lidar, GPS, and other sensors, cameras can help cars and drivers make better decisions.
ARM has come up with a specialized camera chip for cars, with the goal of bringing context to images and improving driver and passenger safety. The Mali-C71 image signal processor will analyze every pixel from cameras onboard a car, and much like a human eye, read the image, and help make driving decisions.
