An image recognition processor able to recognize lanes, vehicles, stoplights, and pedestrians via a camera-based vision system has been developed by Toshiba America Electronic Components (TAEC). The Visconti2 processor can support up to four high-resolution color cameras. It incorporates four media processing engines (MPEs) and six image processing accelerators for enhanced image recognition. It’s also able to sense lighting changes so it performs just as well day or night. The processor is expected to enter volume production in September 2012.
