vehicle perception technolog🐠y that aims tobring together
technic꧂al experts at automotive OE🅷Ms and Tier-1 suppliers,Melexis willshowcase the dual-head Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera. The camera is based on therecently
released EVK75123, a ready-to-use ToF camera, and built around two QVGA ToFsenso🧔rs (MLX7502🍰3) and one companion chip controller (MLX75123), enabling awide field of view (45 x 120 deg2 at 640 x 240 pixels or two independent QVGAdetection zones).
With☂ third party software so💛lutionrunning directly on Melexis'sensor evaluation kits,
designers will be able to test the ToFtechnology directly, resulting in design-cycle-time redu💮ction and thepossibility to work on the full-blown application right from the beginning. “Wechoose to maintain our ToFarchitecture open to third party solution providers and in order to offer afull product portfolio to customers, we ꦕkeep on working on enhanc🥂ed QVGAsensors and high resolution VGA,” explains GualtieroBagnuoli, Marketing Manager Optical Sensors for Melexis.
