Toshiba Expands Family of Image Recognition Processors for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced it will launch a new series of image recognition processors for automotive applications. The Visconti™2 (TMPV7500) series of image recognition processors is designed for camerabased vision applications used in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). These include applications for lane departure warnings, vehicle and pedestrian awareness, traffic signal recognition and parking assistance.

The TMPV7506XBG incorporates Toshiba’s original image processing accelerators suitable for human recognition and can detect pedestrians in the day in addition to conventional detection at night. Support for colour cameras allows recognition of both tone and colour of target objects, enabling recognition of traffic lights and signs. As it can connect up to four sets of cameras simultaneously, the TMPV7506XBG is also applicable for ‘bird’s-eye view’ parking assistance systems that use images synthesized from image data captured by
multiple cameras.

The Visconti2 series also includes the TMPV7504XBG, which supports up to two colour cameras. This IC is suitable for forward monitoring systems where it can simultaneously detect multiple targets including vehicles, lanes and traffic signs.

Toshiba will start sample shipments of the new series in November this year, and mass production in September 2012.The company intends to expand its global image recognition processor business by enhancing these devices for industrial and consumer applications alongside automotive applications.
