Immervision has launched a low-light navigation camera module designed for autonomous and semi-autonomous navigation in all environments including low-light, says the company.
According to the press release:
“Designed to satisfy the demanding requirements of total situational awareness (or 360° surround machine perception) operating in low-light conditions, this plug and play solution gives access to Immervision’s advanced wide-angle camera module and image processing software. Its compact design fits easily in different types of UAV/UAS/drones while its light weight has a small impact on power consumption. The rugged design is well suited for a wide range of applications, including robots, land vehicles, and water vessels.”
“The camera module includes the lens assembly, a 5MP sensor, and a MIPI interface, weighing only 4.7 grams. Unlike a typical fisheye lens this camera module uses a panomorph lens combining an ultra wide-angle Field of View (190° FoV) with a unique distortion profile and a large aperture (F#1.8). It is crafted to maximize the light sensitivity of pixels and optimize the image quality from edge to edge, for use by human operators and/or artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) systems.”
- Wide-angle panomorph lens with smart pixel management provides enhanced image quality.
- The lens small F# and high relative illumination, combined with the high sensitivity of the Sony sensor, ensures exceptional performances in a variety of low light conditions.
- IP67 rating and front lens element in glass for usage in various environments, outdoors and indoors.
- Small footprint and light weight.
- Off-the-self solution, available and ready for implementation.
- Easily customisable to various platforms and flight controllers.
