Both in-car applications and surround sensing use-cases can be enhanced with 3D sensing and allow for several use-cases with only one sensor. All made possible by our dedicated automotive grade and volume-proven 3D Time-of-Flight imager.
Natural interactions are becoming an important tool to simplify the human-machine interface for more comfort as well as safety while driving cars. 3D based gesture control is changing the way consumers interact mainly because of the robustness of such an advanced interface against false-positives or changing environmental conditions, such day- vs. nighttime operation, strong sunlight, shadowing effects and many more.
With increasing degrees of automated driving, the driver is more and more released from the original driving tasks and becomes a passenger. As such the car turns into a living place with completely new interior concepts to offer entertainment and possibilities to work or relax. With Time-of-Flight we can provide the most robust 3D datasimultaneously
Time-of-flight cameras for exterior sensing are the best way to realize a very small solution without any moving parts at comparatively low costs. They provide the most robust 3D data of the environment in high resolution and with a range of up to 10 m. Besides the highly accurate depth data in each pixel, a sunlight-independent amplitude picture is available simultaneously, so that signs on the street can be recognized, for example.
Our dedicated automotive grade certified ToF imager comprises all volume-proven product benefits of the consumer variants by fulfilling automotive requirements. The packaged imager withstands wide temperature range of -40°C to 105°C and has a AEC-Q100 qualification.
