New image sensor enables robotics, logistics and surveillance

Teledyne e2v has announced a new Bora Time-of-Flight CMOS image sensor, tailored for 3D detection and distance measurement to support the latest industrial applications, including vision guided robotics, logistics and surveillance.

Based on an innovative 10µm pixel design and incorporating a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, the Bora image sensor offers excellent sensitivity and a unique on-chip gated global shutter mode, which enables gating times of up to 42ns.

“We are very pleased to announce our newest Time-of-Flight sensor, which provides customers with true 1.3MP depth resolution at more than 30 fps,” commented Ha Lan Do Thu, Marketing Manager for 3D imaging at Teledyne e2v. “The sensor uniquely achieves excellent precision and accuracy in 3D measurements and is highly flexible, handling both short- and long-range capture over 10 meters and in outdoor conditions.”

Bora’s highly flexible design allows for greater adaptability to various scenarios, with precise 3D information detection and 1.3MP depth resolution.

The sensor’s real-time 3D image capture has a depth map of over 30fps in a four-phase operation, and it also provides robust reliability in challenging conditions, and short- and long-range capabilities which are immune to ambient light intrusions, using a unique HDR feature.
