Newsight Imaging Enhances Depth Sensor for Outdoor Automotive, Robotics Applications

Article By : Newsight Imaging

Newsight Imaging's NSI1000A0M is an optimized version of the NSI1000 sensor for outdoor 3D imaging and for low reflectance applications.

As part of its efforts to provide the best depth sensing ROI, Newsight Imaging has launched the NSI1000A0M, an optimized version of the NSI1000 sensor for outdoor 3D imaging and for low reflectance applications. The sensor is already in intensive integration at selected customers in the smart city, automotive, and Industry 4.0 markets.

The NSI1000A0M supports both eTOF (Newsight’s patented enhanced Time-of-Flight technology) and multi-triangulation technologies with 32 lines of 1024 pixels, enabling 32 simultaneous ultra-accurate triangulation points extracted from a single frame using the NSI1000A0M global shutter, or 1024×32 concurrent eTOF depth points.

The power efficient sensor provides multiple added-value features, including automatic peak detection, multiset, and auto exposure. Utilizing the revolutionary in-pixel accumulation feature, each pixel can capture thousands of returning pulses in one frame, translating them into highly sensitive digital signals, able to adapt to beam intensity based on distance and reflectance, while providing both a 3D and black and white image in the same frame.

In addition, Newsight has launched a new configuration tool that supports easy customer optimization to achieve the optimal required performance. An evaluation kit of the NSI1000A0M is now available for testing.
