Many Cameras in a vehicles
Majorly used to assist the driver for parking, manoeuvring and assess the vehicle performance, these camera systems play a crucial role in the most recent applications like Lane Departure Warning Systems (LWDS), Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW). Automotive cameras can be furthermore embedded with advanced computer vision algorithms, for real Machine Vision systems, giving a disrupting contribute to the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
The increasingly stringent government regulations are boosting the adoption of automotive cameras both in light and heavy commercial vehicles, segmenting the current market into various system solutions like Rear View Camera, Surround View Camera, e-Mirror and Driver Monitoring System (DMS).
