ams OSRAM covers way too many product categories, but this video focuses on their CMOS image sensors. Daniel Vander Ley, Product Marketing Manager for the Visualization and Laser asm OSRAM Group, shows off some of the cameras in applications ranging from fruit analysis to car driver head tracking.
One of the cameras that Daniel highlights is the NanEyeM (Fig. 1). This tiny sensor utilizes a 10-bit ADC to deliver a 320- × 320-pixel resolution in a 1-mm2 package. It has a 49 frame/s rate with a 2.4-µm rolling shutter. It was initially designed for medical endoscopic applications. It's available in cable lengths up to 3 m. Other applications include AR/VR headsets and even robots and mini-drones.
Osram has a range of imaging solutions, many of which are going into automotive applications like driver head tracking (Fig. 2). This can be used to make sure the driver is paying attention to the road. The demo uses a machine-learning model to recognize the face from the 3D imaging information from the sensor.
