Sony presents ToF sensors in industrial easy to use 3D Multi Camera Applications
ToF sensors become more and more important in the market. They contribute to the automation of various equipment in situations where 3D sensors are more appropriate.
iToF products such as IMX556 and the new IMX570 sensor are especially effective in high-speed, high-resolution 3D imaging of objects at short and long distances.
Key Features of Sony’s New IMX570 Sensor
The new IMX570 is a 1/4.5-type VGA sensor with 5 µm pixels, and reaches a frame rate up to 56 fps.
Key Features of Sony’s IMX556 Sensor
The IMX556 is a type 1/2-type VGA sensor with 10 µm pixels, and reaches a frame rate up to 60 fps.
Ideal for optimizing material handling lines by measuring positions, sizes and loading rate of pallets or cargos, and for autonomous mobile systems such as AGVs and last-mile robots.
Detection of intrusion into hazardous area, operation monitoring and object location detection for robot picking.
Commercial & Public Facilities
Easy and accurate measurement of crowd levels at stores, airports, theme parks and other public locations as well as sophisticated access control.
Farming & Agriculture
Quality control and productivity improvement, e. g. automated milking, body condition scoring, feed amount detecting and other shape related applications like automatic fruit picking.
Civil Engineering & Construction
Detection of environmental features or objects and support of driver assistance, vehicle automation, site visualization/documentation.
Sony has released a back-illuminated, time-of-flight 3D image sensor for industrial machineries. The new IMX 570 is a type 1/4.5 VGA sensor with 5 µm pixels. Available in series from March 2021!
Applying Sony’s sensing and ranging technologies, the compact and high-resolution sensor acquires depth map which can cover both short and long distance.
