Immervision Launches 190-Degree Lens to Address Low-Light In-Cabin Challenges

Immervision lens 190 degree wide field of view in-cabin technology low-light

Immervision, which develops advanced vision systems that combine optics, image processing and sensor fusion, has announced an off-the-shelf 190-degree lens that addresses specific low-light in-cabin requirements for the automotive industry.

The company said it designed wide-angle Panamorph lens technology into an ultra-wide field of view (FoV) lens, offering complete coverage inside the cabin to meet the needs of both driver and occupant-monitoring applications. The lens distortion profile is designed to generate image quality and a pixel density targeted for crucial applications to enhance gaze tracking, passenger identification, and hands-on-wheel tracking.

In addition, broadband support from visible to near-infrared helps with features such as eye tracking through eyeglasses, determining safety hazards such as driver fatigue and improving passenger classification and object detection at night without the need for external illumination sources.

“In-cabin monitoring applications are evolving from luxury car options to mandatory safety features and are crucial to autonomous driving systems,” said Jean-Sebastien Landry, director of product management at Immervision. “With our new lens, we can combine more applications in a single camera, allowing Tier 1 and OEMs to reduce costs, have a less intrusive in-cabin design, and offer a safer and more enjoyable experience to end users.”

In addition, the smaller footprint of the lens means automakers can offer complete coverage inside the cabin with fewer cameras, as well as provide new entertainment features such as video chat or video conferencing.

Immervision said the new wide-angle lenses are available for integration, along with custom designs to meet specific customer requirements.
