Making a Smarter Rear-View Camera
Rear-view cameras or back-up camera systems provide a fisheye distortion corrected image on the display of a head unit. Next-generation automotive vision systems will automatically identify threatening objects and actively control the automobile to avoid accidents.
This increased functionality requires more computational power from video processing engines. Traditional digital signal processing (DSP) processors or microcontrollers do not have enough power for real-time video processing and analytics as the resolution of the images increases to megapixel sensors.
