Modular Area View Kit allows OEMs fast setup of test systems

First Sensor presents a modular Area View Kit (AVK) for the setup of 360° all-round view systems for applications in special vehicles and machines.

The Area View Kit allows solution providers, integrators and OEMs to quickly and easily build up, develop, and test a demo system. Therefore, it accelerates the development process and minimizes technology risks. The kit consists of four digital HDR-CMOS cameras with a range of accessories for mounting on the vehicle or on a metal plate for desktop applications. The AVK software stitches the images of the individual cameras together to form a virtual overall picture and allows the programming of arbitrary viewing angles and zoom functions.

The Area View Kit delivers real-time images not only from a bird's eye view, but from any angle in a 360° all-round view. The driver or operator virtually looks from the outside on his machine and recognizes obstacles and distances to objects. This increases both the reliability and productivity through faster maneuvering and avoidance of accidents and interruptions. The robust, high-performance CMOS cameras of the Area View Kit feature a very wide dynamic range >100 dB for difficult lighting conditions and withstand the harshest environmental conditions such as cold, heat and permanent vibrations. The platform-independent, flexible AVK software can be easily integrated in various operating and image processing systems and adapted to customer requirements. The kit provides an OpenGL ES application programming interface and minimizes CPU load through the predominant use of the graphics processor. On request, the development engineers at First Sensor support OEMs in the adaption, development and expansion of the Area View Kit in the specific customer application.

Important features of the Area View Kit (AVK):
* Fast and easy buildup of 360° all-round view systems
* Consists of four HDR-CMOS cameras, software and accessories
* Arbitrary viewing angles and zoom functions
* OpenGL ES application programming interface

The Area View Kit is ideal for solution providers, integrators and OEMs to develop 360° area view systems for motor vehicles, commercial vehicles, special vehicles, as well as agricultural, construction and mining machines.
