The windscreen-glare removal application aims to improve road safety through ITS enforcement and tolling applications, for example tracking seatbelt and mobile phone use; or more reliably identifying a driver caught by speed and red-light cameras. The SDK enables system integrators to significantly cut development cost and time when creating applications using polarised modules. Based on Sony’s newly developed IMX250MZR global shutter CMOS sensor, which uses monochrome quad polarised filters to capture polarised light in four planes, the XCG-CP510 is the industry’s first polarised camera to feature an SDK. The unit outputs 5.1 MP polarised B/W images at 23 fps, transmitted over a GigE interface.
The small footprint of this cubic camera also includes multiple trigger modes: edge detection, pulse width detection, bulk trigger, sequential trigger, free set sequence and a burst-trigger function. Additionally the module can be fired via hardware or software triggers or via the IEEE1588 precision timing protocol, with the unit capable of acting as either a slave or dynamically assigned master device.
