Integrated cameras are now standard features in many automobiles. They are no longer just used as back-up aids. As smart algorithms advance, multiple cameras can be used for collision avoidance, viewing assistance, recording, lane-departure warning and can replace mirrors. Self-driving cars encompass all of this technology, with advanced vision and detections systems tied to sophisticated pattern recognition, intelligence algorithms and robust performance.

Developing vision systems for this sector can require a mix of camera technologies that must work together seamlessly. Front-end tailored image processing at the camera module level means the intelligent processing system is fed with an image stream or video that is optimal for its algorithms.
