Lens manufacturer Tamron and visions system integrator Macq have signed a deal to produce a new camera.
Tamron is providing the lens, while Belgium-based Macq is providing the housing and the electronics boards – and will sell the camera as its own product.
Powered by artificial intelligence, the traffic sensor can be used for all kinds of applications, Macq says. These include: traffic monitoring, automatic make and model recognition, speed control, parking and automatic number plate recognition.
Bertrand Marlot, head of supply chain and product development at Macq, says: “We will look to develop more in future. We are focusing on development and we will look for partnerships to develop cameras.”
Last month, Tamron showed off its 30X-zoom global shutter -type camera with Sony’s IMX265 1/1.8” image sensor at Vision 2018 in Stuttgart, Germany.
