Sony announces the IMX382 high-speed vision sensor, which enables detection and tracking of objects at 1,000 fps. Sony begins sampling it in October 2017.
This vision sensor features a stacked configuration with a BI pixel array and signal processing circuit layer. The circuit layer is equipped with image processing circuits and a programmable column-parallel processor, delivering high-speed target detection and tracking. The new sensor uses information such as color and brightness obtained from pixels to detect objects, then extracts the object's centroid, moment and motion vector, and finally outputs the information from the vision sensor in each frame.
