Image sensor OmniVision OV7261 with global shutter will help to monitor the driver
Simultaneously with the image sensor OV10650, OmniVision introduced the image sensor OV7261, is also designed for automotive electronics. However, unlike OV10650 sensor OV7261 designed for use in systems that are not tracking the traffic situation, and the driver.
Ultra-compact sensor with low power consumption can be the basis of the system of recognition of gestures and used to determine the status of the driver. For example, the system may notice that the driver falls asleep or is distracted from driving. To implement these functions useful important feature OV7261 — high sensitivity in the near infrared region. Another advantage OV7261 — global shutter to eliminate the appearance of artifacts when shooting moving objects and precisely synchronize the images of two cameras in stereoscopic systems.
Sensor resolution is 640 x 480 pixels, pixel size 3 µm. The sensor forms an image in 10-bit representation of the RAW frequency of 100 K/s. the Size of the sensor performed by the CSP equal to 3.9 x 3.4 mm.
Study samples OV7261 already available. Serial production of the manufacturer expects to begin in the first quarter of 2017.
