Ambarella Inc., a camera technology maker, unveiled CV5, an artificial intelligence (AI) vision processor capable of recording 8K video or four 4K video streams. The new system on chip (SoC) will enable the development of intelligent automotive camera systems and other camera technology, the company says.
For the heavy-duty industry, Ambarella says CV5 provides the performance necessary to encode multiple video streams from front ADAS, driver monitoring, cabin monitoring and side-view cameras. Its CVflow AI engine can simultaneously run advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) algorithms such as lane departure and forward collision warning as well as driver monitoring algorithms such as drowsy driver detection. The combination of high-resolution video capture with advanced AI processing enables ADAS cameras to recognize images over long distances and with high accuracy, the company says.
