STMicroelectronics has unveiled two automotive global shutter image sensors, the VG5661 and VG5761, for driver monitoring.

The advanced image sensors enhance monitoring of vehicle occupants by capturing the scene as illuminated from the camera, eliminating unpredictable external effects such as sunlight or street lighting. Their high image quality sharpens the responses of driver-monitoring systems, especially under near-infrared illumination close to 940 nm, and enables features such as assessing driver attention, passenger comfort or child behaviour. The sensors embed ST’s automotive global shutter technology that minimises the illumination power consumption, even in high dynamic range mode.

Enhanced driver monitoring using the image sensors has the potential to reduce injuries and save lives. The sensing accuracy also helps autonomous-driving systems assess a human driver’s fitness to take over any time during a journey, easing transitions between manual and autonomous driving modes for greater comfort and safety.

The image sensors are designed to enhance the performance of advanced automotive and industrial machine-vision applications. Driver-monitoring software from Jungo leverages the crisp, clear images from the sensors to monitor the position and movements of all occupants, assessing the driver’s condition and surveying the location and movements of other vehicle occupants.
