Samsung has just announced the ISOCELL Auto 4AC which is the first image sensor made for cars. This sensor is said to function to collect data on objects around the car while it is driving.
However, the sensor presented by Samsung does not focus on producing the clearest image quality with high resolution, ISOCELL Auto 4AC focuses on detecting objects with a dynamic range of 120 dB and LED flicker.
It is called Corner Pixel technology, this technology will combine two photodiodes per one pixel which allows this sensor to work in both light and dark conditions (low-light).
With this sensor, the system in the car can adjust conditions more quickly if there is a moment when the light changes from bright to dark, such as when entering a tunnel or exiting a tunnel.
But for those of you who want to know the resolution, ISOCELL Auto 4AC has a 1.3MP (1280 x 960) resolution which comes with a size of 1/3.7 inches.
Currently, Samsung has also signed a contract with Tesla for US $436 million (approx. ₦180 billion naira) so that the sensor made by Samsung is used in the Tesla Cybertruck which is now ready for mass production.
