OmniVision and Fullhan Announce Collaboration on RGB-IR Solution for Automotive Cabin Monitoring Systems
May 30, 2019
Solution fine tunes industry?s smallest and best value 2MP RGB-IR automotive image sensor for optimal performance with low light, cost effective image signal processor.
SANTA CLARA, CA. OmniVision Technologies, Inc. and Fullhan Microelectronics will join forces on capturing and processing high quality color (RGB) and infrared (IR) automotive interior images with a single camera for both day and night vision. The solution will merge OmniVision’s OV2778 2MP RGB-Ir image sensor with Fullhan’s FH8310 image signal processor (ISP).
The OV2778 image sensor, built on OmniVision’s 2.8-micron OmniBSI™-2 Deep Well pixel technology, provides a 16-bit linear output from a single exposure with low-light sensitivity. The FH8310 ISP features a 3D de-noise module with optimal low light performance.
The two will produce a high-quality video for both machine vision in-cabin monitoring systems (IMS) and viewing applications for facial recognition, identification of objects and unattended children, remote monitoring, and recording for ride-sharing and robo taxi vehicles.
“We partnered with OmniVision because it provides a mature RGB-IR image sensor for IMS that was readily adaptable to our processor,” said Fullhan’s VP of sales, Shen Ma. “Our FH8310 is a high performance, cost effective 2MP ISP for automotive image sensors that provides good low light performance and an internal analog high definition transceiver.”
“Fullhan provides a full-service ISP offering for China and other regions,” said OmniVision’s China regional marketing director, Shu Meng. “Following the recent introduction of our OV2778 image sensor, we developed a fine-tuned joint solution that makes it easy for designers to create high value cabin monitoring systems for mainstream vehicles.”
