Aptina looks forward with high dynamic range automotive image sensor

SAN JOSE, USA & MUNICH, GERMANY: Aptina, the leading innovator of CMOS image sensors, has launched the MT9M024 image sensor, the latest addition to the company’s growing portfolio of automotive imaging solutions.

The 1.2-megapixel, 1/3-inch optical format sensor provides a variety of advanced features that include high dynamic range (HDR) greater than 115dB, full motion compensation and DR-Pix technology that enhances the performance of the pixel in very low light conditions.

Detail-rich high definition (HD) video (720p/60fps), and surround-view ready, the MT9M024 provides advanced imaging technology to improve driver safety as a result of excellent image quality for automotive forward-facing solutions like lane departure warning (LDW) and traffic sign recognition (TSR).

“We listened to our customers in the automotive market and understand the need for high performance imaging solutions in automotive applications,” said David Zimpfer, Vice President and General Manager, Automotive and Industrial Business Unit at Aptina.

“Forward-facing and surround-view applications demand a greater level of technology and sophistication to assist the driver. Solutions like our new MT9M024 enable lane departure warning, sign recognition, stereo vision, pedestrian detection, rear view, surround view and drowsy driver applications.”
