SMK Electronics Corporation, U.S.A. Introduces New Automotive-Grade 5 Megapixel RGB/IR Camera at CES 2023

6 January 2023

SMK Electronics Corporation, U.S.A. today announced the introduction of the company’s RGB-IR ultra-high resolution 5-megapixel automotive grade camera. Designed for in-cabin monitoring of seat occupancy, the RGB-IR gathers significantly greater detail in both normal and low light conditions; and, with its comparatively smaller footprint, replaces the dual RGB and IR cameras traditionally used for this purpose.

In this spirit of innovation, SMK is pleased to introduce our new RGB/IR 5-Megapixel Automotive-Grade Camera at CES 2023."

“Gathering significantly greater detail in both normal and low lighting conditions, the RGB/IR camera is ideal for OMS (Occupancy Monitoring System) and DMS (Driver Monitoring System) roles,” continued Mr. Evans. “Its higher resolution and greater RGB color sensitivity, combined with a relatively small footprint, make the RGB/IR a perfect single camera replacement for the dual RGB and IR camera sub-systems now in use.”
