Omron Electronic Components has released a compact and easy-to-mount human vision component to provide an image sensing capability to various devices. Known as the HVC-P2, it has a maximum recognition speed 10 times of the original HVC model.

The device incorporates a choice of wide-angle and long-distance options to match users range needs for applications from digital signage and vending machines to home appliances and security doors. The long-range option has a horizontal angle of view of 54° and a vertical angle of view of 41°. The wide-angle option has a horizontal angle of view of 94° and a vertical angle of view of 76°

Ten types of image-sensing functions are incorporated to recognise human conditions in various perspectives: face detection, human body detection, hand detection, face direction estimation, gaze estimation, blink estimation, age estimation, gender estimation, expression estimation (five facial expressions: neutral, happiness, surprise, anger and sadness) and face recognition.

The product consists of a camera and a separate main board (45 x 45 mm) connected via a flexible flat cable, allowing it to be installed on the edge of a flat display unit. Output image can be chosen from three types: no image output, 160 x 120 pixels and 320 x 240 pixels.

Other features include: supply voltage of 5 VDC ±10%, with consumption current below 0.4 A; an operating temperature range from 0 to 50°C; and a RAW (8-bit, Y data) image format.
