Imatest Releases Stray Light (Flare) Analysis with Upcoming Version 22.2

September 13th, 2022, Brussels, Belgium, and Boulder, CO. Imatest announced at AutoSens Brussels the release of its new stray light (flare) testing solution, available with Imatest version 22.2. 

 

Stray light, also known as flare, is any light that reaches the detector (i.e., the image sensor) other than through the designed optical path. Stray light can be thought of as systematic, scene-dependent optical noise. Depending on the mechanism causing the stray light, it can produce phantom objects within the scene (i.e., ghosts/ghosting), reduce contrast over portions of the image (e.g., veiling glare), and effectively reduce system dynamic range. These factors can adversely affect the application performance of

Imatest announces new Target Generator Library

We are happy to announce the release of the new Target Generator Library today. The Imatest Target Generator is free software that will facilitate rapid, iterative lens and camera design by enabling simulations that can help a designer make better informed decisions about what components are appropriate  in advance of costly prototyping phases.

 

The new Imatest Target Generator provides virtual chart solutions. Quantitative and qualitative results from applying ray tracing, noise effects, and image signal processing to virtual charts aid engineers in communicating the impact of various lens and camera design para

Imatest will attend AutoSens in Detroit on May 10-12, 2022. AutoSens is a 3-day workshop, conference, and exhibition advancing the education for and development of vehicle perception technology. It brings together over a thousand minds in vehicle perception, ADAS, and autonomous vehicles twice a year—in Detroit, Michigan USA in May, and Brussels, Belgium in September. Each event includes conference sessions, discussions, collaborations, debates, networking, business meetings, interactive learning, autonomous driving demonstrations, and technology exhibition showcasing. With a full COVID-safe exhibition of over 30 key industry players, a range of round table sessions and two drinks receptions, you can maximize the opportunity to network with expert engineers, academics, and professionals.

Imatest is advancing autonomous technology with software, equipment, and expertise around image quality. Our engineers are actively involved in defining automotive imaging standards as part of the IEEE-SA P2020 working group. P2020’s goal is to resolve the current ambiguity around automotive imaging standards by defining a coherent set of key performance indicators.

Come visit booth #36 for more information on the groundbreaking software, charts, and equipment has to offer. We’ll have a team of imaging engineers on site to answer any of your questions.

AutoSens Detroit will take place at:





The Michigan Science Center
5020 John R St, Detroit, MI 48202, USA
