Sony unveiled a new high speed vision sensor.

Sony developed a new CMOS sensor enabling object detection and tracking with high-speed at 1,000 frames per second. The Sony IMX382 chip begin shipping samples from October 2017.

The IMX 382 chip has a backside illuminated pixel part and a signal processing circuit part. The circuit part carries an image processing circuit and a programmable column parallel processor which performs object detection and tracking at high speed.

Sony's new vision sensor detects an object by information such as color and luminance obtained from a pixel, further detects the center of gravity position and area, the direction of movement and more. The meta data is stores as part of the image frame.

Sony says that the IMX 382 is 33 times faster than current image sensors on the market. Plus the IMX 382 records the additional meta data of the detected movement. Applications for the new IMX 382 include manufacturing, robots, drones and of course weapons.

Sony has released a video showing off the IMX 382 chip in action. Especially the demo with the small robot prototype is impressive.

Sony aims to expand the capabilities of CMOS chips to create new markets and applications.
