About the client

Based in Israel, the client is one of the world’s leading autonomous traffic management platforms. They aim to harness next-gen technology to make sure that roads are intelligent and safe for citizens. They are backed by a highly-skilled team of AI, cybersecurity, automotive specialists.

Key Challenges and customer's expectations

The client wanted to build a smart camera system that could be seamlessly fit onto signal posts in the city. Apart from streaming the video, they also required the images to be processed and analytics to be updated to the cloud. Additionally, only important parts of the overall daily footage were to be uploaded.

Going beyond documentation, the client required access to real-time actionable analytics to prevent traffic congestion, detect traffic violation, etc.

Other unique client requirements were:

  • Rugged camera design to withstand unpredictable outdoor weather
  • High Dynamic Range for challenging lighting conditions

Selection of the camera module

e-con Systems selected the e-CAM20_CU0230_MOD camera module since it met the unique requirements of the client’s smart traffic system. The camera module’s sensor had exceptional HDR performance in the face of varying light intensity, with quick interfacing options to NVIDIA TX2 platforms. Based on AR0230AT CMOS Image sensor from ON Semiconductor, it also came with the ability to stream seamlessly at wide temperature range (-40°C to 105°C) - suitable for automotive applications.
We also leveraged its S-mount (M12) lens holder to allow the client to choose and use the lens according to their use case.

How e-con Systems™ delivered a hassle-free solution

e-con systems helped the client integrate the e-CAM20_CU0230_MOD module into the smart camera system, with inhouse customization of the ISP and camera settings to support the chosen lens.

We conducted extensive trials along with the client to optimize the NVIDIA camera driver, as well as the camera pipeline. Following are some of the key features of the camera solution:

  • 3.0m x 3.0m pixel to provide better low light performance
  • Uncompressed UYVY data for best image quality
  • Support for auto functions and other standard controls

Business benefits

  • Off-the-shelf module and customized solution – quick to start mass-volume production
  • End-to-end integration support for software, hardware, lens, and camera driver
  • Superior ability to reduce traffic congestions and better manage traffic flow
