6 Oct, 2015

 TOKYO – Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that DENSO Corporation (DENSO) is deploying Toshiba’s TMPV7506XBG image recognition processor in its latest front-camera-based active safety system. Vehicles equipped with DENSO’s camera system will reach the market in fall of 2015.


The TMPV7506XBG image recognition processor IC supports multiple camera-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) functions, including lane detection, vehicle detection, pedestrian detection and traffic sign recognition. It concurrently executes multiple applications with low power consumption.


Toshiba is developing a family of automotive image recognition processor solutions. Products include TMPV7528XBG, which adds an ARM® Cortex®-A9 MPCore, and the TMPV7608XBG, which offers Toshiba’s original color-based pattern recognition technology, ideal for pedestrian recognition at night.
