Sensata Technologies' Vision Sensors Target Operator Safety and Awareness in Auto Aftermarket

via PRNewswire

LAS VEGAS , Nev., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensata Technologies( today at SEMA broadened the application of their vehicle vision sensors for automotive safety to aftermarket vehicle safety and operator awareness systems. The company will display these aftermarket sensor applications for motor homes, military and law-enforcement vehicles,forklifts, trucks, and other industrial equipment throughout the week at booth #50202.

Sensata's ACM100 camera module is based on the IM103 CMOS image sensor. The module has unsurpassed wide dynamic range (up to 120 db) enabled bySensata's Autobrite(R) technology. It can accurately capture visual information during extreme dark and bright light conditions for on- and off-road applications.

The IM103's spectral range is sensitive to both visible and near infrared(NIR) wavelengths enabling the camera to capture images that are unseen by thehuman eye but present in low light. This capability far exceeds traditional imagers allowing commercial camera systems to "see" in dramatically changinglighting conditions common in both day and night operation.

For example, these camera systems installed in heavy construction vehiclesprovide the operator better situational awareness, resulting in safer operation. The benefits of the system are especially evident at night when low lighting might make it difficult or impossible to see with the human eye orwith conventional imagers.

In addition to the aftermarket vision sensors, Sensata Technologies supplies the automotive customization market with pressure sensors ideally suited for aftermarket performance exhaust, fuel injection and manifold systems.
