Ultrafast Camera Developed for Drones, Autonomous Vehicles

An ultrafast high-contrast camera developed in Singapore could help self-driving cars and drones “see” better in adverse road and weather conditions. The smart camera, created by a team of scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), can record the slightest of movements and objects in real-time, even when blinded by bright light or in complete darkness. The new camera records changes in light intensity between scenes at nanosecond intervals, much faster than conventional video, and stores the images in a smaller data format as well.
