Embedded Area View – Based on HDR CMOS Cameras

Designed to increase comfort and safety whilst driving using several ADAS functionalities from 360° area view up to object recognition and its derivations, the Embedded Area View supports the principle of accident avoidance. It meets the increasing demand for a robust and embedded system for industrial, automotive and safety markets.

Starting from basic functionality such as well-known birds-eye view or top view, the Area View application is capable of supporting any viewer position and viewing angle from the vehicle to the outside world. A full 360° area view can be given or the view from outside to the vehicle. In driving mode, it is possible to modify the viewing position by selecting one of several predefined viewing positions.

Additional functionalities such as object recognition of pedestrians or traffic signs, tracking, distance measurement of objects, etc. are modular addable. More complex functions are under development. The system meets automotive temperature, real-time, memory, shock, processor power and also ASIL constraints.
