Image sensor for human recognition
21 February 2018, Opto-Electronics

The B5T-007001-010 from Omron Electronic Components is an approximately 50° long-distance type human vision components (HVC-P2) system. The image-sensing unit can recognise human facial expression, gender, age, gaze and blink into a camera module, and boasts a maximum recognition speed 10 times that of its predecessor HVC model.

Ten types of image-sensing functions are incorporated to recognise human conditions in various perspectives such as face detection, body detection, hand detection, face direction estimation, gaze estimation, blink estimation, age estimation, gender estimation, expression estimation (five facial expressions: neutral, happiness, surprise, anger and sadness) and face recognition.

The HVC-P2 consists of a camera and a separate main board connected via a flexible flat cable allowing it to be installed on the edge of a flat display unit. The output image can be chosen from three types: no image output,

160x120 pixels and 320x240 pixels. Detection resolution is 1600 x 1200 pixels, and detection range is 54° horizontal and 41° vertical.
