Laser LiDAR target markets
CMOS laser LiDAR image-based sensors for autonomous robotic home appliances
NewSight CMOS laser LiDAR image based sensors provide images that accurately terrain map the indoor environment.
Autonomous home appliances, such as a service mopping – vacuum cleaning robot, require CMOS image sensor technology that can create highly accurate mapping, obstacle detection and object avoidance systems. They rely on receiving high resolution images and accurate data pertaining to objects and their distance from the device in order to avoid them. As a result, robotic manufacturers have a growing need for sensor technology that will allow them to build more precise, efficient and real time image analysis. NewSight builds CMOS image-based sensors for laser LiDAR that are designed with the exact characteristics and requirements for the autonomous home appliances robotic market.
CMOS laser LiDAR image based sensors for automotive visual safety solutions
NewSight CMOS laser LiDAR image sensor-based chips provide the utmost sensitivity, performance and accuracy for visual safety solutions.
Distance alert helps the driver keep a proper distance from nearby vehicles and potential hazards. The driver can select the distance to be maintained from the car in front and back. If the distance becomes shorter than the selected value, the driver receives visual information. The distance alert is tailored to help the driver using 3D imaging technology to seamlessly estimate speed and distance. It is an intelligent sensing – vision based technology in active and passive automotive safety systems that use cameras for remote sensing. With the advantage of higher resolution for better object recognition, cameras are already being deployed in applications such as rear view enhancement, night vision, and lane departure warning. NewSight’s CMOS image sensor-based chip for laser LiDAR is designed and customized specifically for automotive visual safety solutions.
CMOS laser LiDAR image sensor based chips for the drone industry
NewSight’s CMOS image sensor-based chip is designed to provide efficient, reliable and precise realtime image processing for drones.
Drone manufacturers are increasingly required to deliver a highly precise, geo-reference of 3D images and mapping capabilities. They use laser LiDAR which is a relatively new land surveying technique based on high precision laser scanners to allow the positioning and orientation of a laser beam as it hits an object, to a high degree of accuracy. Drones for laser LiDAR require building a realtime outdoor terrain map from high elevation with imagery that reveals objects hidden in vegetation as well as below ground level. NewSight’s CMOS image sensors have the sensitivity, customization and high volume measurement capability required to create real time, ultra-high resolution aerial data maps for drones that will enable our customers to take informed and targeted actions.
