New system uses thermal camera and CO sensor to improve vehicle safety
New system uses thermal camera and CO sensor to improve vehicle safety 26 December 2014 eInfochips, a leading Product Engineering Services company, announced the availability of a new System on Module (SoM) and related engineering services. When connected to a car’s telemetry system that collects data about the car and the environment, the system module’s thermal camera can detect the presence of children in the vehicle. In addition to that, a sensor on the system module can detect increase in the levels of carbon monoxide (CO). If a child or pet is found on board and CO levels exceed specified thresholds, a car alarm will be activated, and alerts are sent to an emergency list including the car owner, family and 911. The core of this new class of vehicle safety systems is the SoM designed by eInfochips based on the i.MX 6 series applications processor. Samples of the SoM a...
