With the intent to speed and simplify deployment of image sensing solutions for automotive manufacturers and suppliers, ON joins Baidu’s Apollo Autonomous Driving Platform. Apollo provides an open-source software and hardware system, enabling the efficient development of autonomous driving systems. Image sensing is a key component of the Apollo platform, which supports enhanced autonomous driving functionality.
ON Semiconductor’s fully-qualified 3mm-based advanced CMOS image sensor product provides a foundation for immediate development of vision systems for autonomous driving, with the flexibility to move to future sensors at volume deployment. With high dynamic range, the sensor is able to provide crisp, clear single images and video in the challenging low and mixed light scenes synonymous with automotive environments.
In addition to simplified and accelerated design, test and implementation of automotive camera applications, the relationship gives Apollo ecosystem members priority access to ON Semiconductor’s technical support and product information. All Apollo partners will also get early opportunities to work with future generation, breakthrough image sensing technologies from ON Semiconductor. You can get more details from ON Semiconductor.
