High Resolution and Dynamic Range Imaging Drive Opportunities
The technology and innovation report assess innovations in image sensors and also its impact on different industries. Increasing need for high resolution and dynamic range and fast imaging in applications such as automotive, aerospace, medical, consumer electronics and industrial drives the need for enhanced image sensing device.

The automotive sector is focused on increasing the safety of driver and car to the next level and image sensors facilitate enhanced safety in cars. Innovations in image sensors enable medical applications ranging from X-ray imaging to smart pills. Adoption of image sensors is envisioned high for industrial applications such as machine vision, quality check, inspection, and robotics. Improved efficiency, reduced cost, and low energy consumption aspects of image sensors have garnered interest from various industries including aerospace.

The market share for image sensors in the aerospace industry will increase as cameras become key components for safety, pilot assistance in landing, and structural health monitoring. Mobile phones with imaging capabilities are driving the growth of image sensors for consumer electronics. The report focuses on analysing key innovations in different sectors such as automotive, medical, industrial, and aerospace and consumer electronics.

Impact on Key Sectors:

Automotive:

- The automotive sector is focused on increasing the safety of driver and car to the next level. Image sensor is one of the major driving forces for increasing the safety level. Manufacturers are planning to incorporate image sensing in various advanced driver assistance applications. Applications powered by image sensing and advanced driver assistance are pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, park assist, blind spot detection and lane departure warning.

Consumer Electronics:

- Image sensors are generally part of a device that has multiple functions, in addition to capturing images. In digital cameras, high frame rates and larger image sensors are required as they are used specifically for the purpose of capturing high-quality images and recording videos. In consumer electronics, image sensors, including 3D image sensors based on time-of-flight will find increasing opportunities.

Medical:

- Medical imaging requires minimally invasive devices that are convenient for patients. Moreover, as image sensors are introduced inside the body, they can capture images in low light. Cost is a key factor as these devices should ideally be used once because of hygiene issues. With X-ray imaging, large area sensors are required because the size of the image sensor should be equal to the size of the area being imaged.

Industrial:

- For some applications such as welding, high dynamic range imaging is required, and for normal machine vision, high frame rates are a necessity. In the long term, small-sized cameras would become important, therefore, they could fit into any part of a plant or process. In general, industrial applications require robust sensors that can perform in extreme operating conditions, including high temperature, dust, and moisture.

Aerospace:

- Aerospace is focused towards increasing the safety of pilot and aircraft with the help of collision avoidance and machine vision. Image sensing is one of the key driving force for increasing the situational awareness and visibility in the aviation sector which will further minimize the risk of accidents in bad weather condition. Applications powered by image sensor are helping pilot in maneuvering the aircraft, guiding engineers to find the source of leak in the roof, monitoring the behavior of high speed flying object and many more.
