“The demand for driver monitoring systems is expected to increase significantly as more affordable technologies allow advanced semi-automated features to transition from high-end to mainstream vehicles,” said Jeff Morin, automotive product marketing manager at OmniVision. “Possessing the same capability customarily found in much larger and more expensive sensors, the OV2311 aims to bring advanced driver monitoring systems to the masses by delivering high-level, cost-effective performance in a compact form factor.”
Vision-based driver monitoring systems in semi-autonomous vehicles require highly sophisticated eye-tracking technology and imaging capabilities. The OV2311 achieves high near-infrared quantum efficiency to minimize active illumination power. The sensor’s 1600 x 1300 resolution format is designed to fit a driver’s head box to ensure reliable monitoring regardless of that driver’s height or seat position. Packaged in OmniVision’s ultra-compact automotive chip-scale package (a-CSP), the OV2311 can be discreetly installed anywhere inside the automobile’s cockpit.
The OV2311 is available for sampling, with volume production expected in the fourth quarter of 2017.
