ON Semiconductor, driving energy efficient innovations, has announced that SUBARU CORPORATION has selected its image sensing technology to enable camera-based ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) in the car manufacturer’s new-generation EyeSight Driver Assist platform.
SUBARU’s EyeSight is one of the most well established and widely deployed vision-based ADAS solutions in the market. The new generation continues the stereo camera architecture, providing a range of ADAS features including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and pre-collision braking system. As with previous versions of EyeSight, ON Semiconductor’s image sensing technology acts as the ‘eyes’ to enable this important safety functionality. The new-generation Eyesight, recently announced in the Japan market, provides additional features such as active lane change assist and an emergency driver stop system.
“We have teamed with ON Semiconductor for every generation of the EyeSight ADAS system and continue to adopt its image sensing technology optimized for image recognition performance in automotive applications with higher resolution,”Eiji Shibata, general manager, EyeSight development project at SUBARU.
As the global market leader in automotive image sensing technology, ON Semiconductor has shipped over 120 million image sensors into ADAS applications, and the company continues to innovate to meet the demand for future ADAS and autonomous driving systems. The company’s image sensing technology provides the resolution and frame rates that enable automotive camera systems to perform at optimal levels; the High Dynamic Range and flexible exposure ratio control required to ensure performance in all natural lighting conditions; and LED flicker mitigation to prevent interference from artificial light sources.
