For certain ADAS applications, the camera provides low-latency images to the driver via the dashboard or display screen. This is most commonly seen with convenience features known as a back-up or reverse camera.
The camera uses optical sensors with lens and image signal processors. ADAS cameras provide the driver with a visual display and monitor and detect objects that may pose a potential hazard, and even help alert the driver to these potential hazards.
Cameras are also used in numbers other ADAS applications, like automatic emergency braking, traffic sign recognition, and manufacturer-specific features like Cadillac’s Super Cruise.
