STMicroelectronics Introduces Automotive CMOS Sensor

23 DECEMBER 2008

STMicroelectronics announced its first high-dynamic-range CMOS camera specifically tailored for the vision-based driver-assistance segment of the automotive market. The new sensor combines the company’s world-class expertise in automotive markets together with leading-edge CMOS imaging technology. The device is currently sampling to lead customers and will be in available at distributor Rutronik in early 2009.
The role of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is to increase the driver’s awareness of conditions around their vehicle, detecting dangers and providing support in hazardous situations. It is estimated that more than 90% of all automobile accidents involve human error and many could be eliminated with automatic warning systems. The extended range of the new CMOS sensor from ST provides superb images even in extreme illumination conditions, providing real-time information for active safety systems.
The new VL5510 sensor feeds the decision-making vision processor that activates functions such as active braking and lane-departure warning. The VL5510’s detection capabilities dramatically increase the reliability of vision-based advanced driver assistance systems in even the most difficult environmental conditions
