ABSTRACT
The article reports that the automotive sector is going to be a big market for cameras as technology for driver assistance and safety are added to vehicles. According to U.S. firm OmniVision Technologies the lead application in cars is the reversing camera, but other applications being discussed will also require cameras. Since the company started it has shipped over 130 million, with most of these being in the last two years as a result of the growth in popularity of camera phones. The company currently offers TMpixel sensors for digital still cameras and 2Mpixel for mobile phones and expects to announce a SMpixel sensor for mobile phones in Q2.
