Denso Corp. on July 25 unveiled a new automotive vision sensor that is 50 percent smaller than the company's previous sensor. The new sensor, which is used in active safety systems with Automatic High Beam (AHB) control systems and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems, is the world's smallest.
In addition, the sensor can perform at a higher operating temperature compared with the previous model, making this the largest operating temperature range in the world.
Denso's new sensor is equipped with a full-color camera, which allows the LDW system to detect lane line markings in various colors around the world. This also allows the AHB Control systems to easily distinguish the tail lights of the vehicle ahead from other light sources.
This new vision sensor is available as a factory option for the Lexus ES, launched in China in July, and then later in North America, Russia, the Middle East, as well as other regions of the world.
