SDK speeds development for polarized imaging applications

SDK speeds development for polarized imaging applications

SDK overviewIt’s been several years since the research and development and market development phases of Sony’s first polarized camera module—the XCG-CP510—began, according to Clauss.“In this time, from talking with selected key players of targeted markets, it became clear to us that the biggest barrier to adoption was the ability of system developers to work with the new sensor technology easily,” says Clauss.As a result, Sony has for the first time developed a dedicated image processing library to speed solution development. The SDK’s functions—including stress measurement and glare reduction—run on a standard PC with choice of CPU or GPU architecture dictated by the processing functions, resolutions, and frame rate. With the SDK, Sony suggests that solution development can be improved from a range of 6 to 24 months to 6 to 12 weeks, depending on the team.

Polarisation is glaringly obvious, says Sony

Polarisation is glaringly obvious, says Sony

Glare from the sun is a factor in a large number of road accidents – many of them fatal. But there is a solution at hand: using polarisation can mitigate the effect of glare and improve ITS camera enforcement, explains Stephane Clauss.
