Projected to reach a solid 2-digit growth in the next years, automotive cameras are on-board systems meant to provide the highest video quality and HDR images, augment the internal and external scene visibility and enhance the global awareness of the surrounding environment.
Conceived to monitor the in-cabin vehicle alertness, the Driver Monitoring System (DMS) is critical for supporting highly autonomous driving functions, not only by recognizing the driver, but also monitoring the level of vigilance and detecting the e
Driving assistance and autonomous driving systems need to be able to operate even in conditions of low visibility or complete darkness. Thermal sensors provide an advantage in such situations due to their independence from ambient light levels and th
Specifically designed for the purpose of being placed to the rear of a vehicle, Rear View Cameras have witnessed a relevant spread from premium to economy vehicles, being today a valid support for the driver in backing up, avoiding accidental collisi

Many Cameras in a vehicle
Majorly used to assist the driver for parking, manoeuvring and assess the vehicle performance, these camera systems play a crucial role in the most recent applications like Lane Departure Warning Systems (LWDS), Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW). Automotive cameras can be furthermore embedded with advanced computer vision algorithms, for real Machine Vision systems, giving a disrupting contribute to the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
The increasingly stringent government regulations are boosting the adoption of automotive cameras both in light and heavy commercial vehicles, segmenting the current market into various system solutions like Rear View Camera, Surround View Camera, e-Mirror and Driver Monitoring System (DMS).
