Advanced in-cabin safety and comfort with new hybrid image sensors

While driver monitoring systems promise greater road safety by assessing driver alertness and ability to drive, the next step on the way to autonomous cars is sensors that monitor the full vehicle interior, covering both the driver and all passengers. At the same time, new applications will be enabled, like safety belt checks, vital sign monitoring, child detection and high-quality video/picture recording. The presentation will show how this innovative sensor can enable a 'one camera' system which integrates both infrared and HDR color images and solves development pain points, thus generating a cost-efficient solution and at the same time bringing added value to customers.

The audience will learn:

  • Image sensor technology
  • Mixel color filter sensors
  • Machine and human vision application in one sensor
