Position Sensors / Detectors / Transducers

System Semiconductor calculates distance using one camera.

Offering performance exceeding 30 fps, DR1151 uses Dual Aperture's 4-color 3D image solution technology, which extracts RGB and IR signalsÂ- from single image sensor, to calculate relative distance to object with single-lens camera. Application of self-developed hardware blocks to process calculations required for extracting relative distance minimizes power consumption,...
