ON Semiconductor and SUBARU redefine ADAS capability with new machine vision algorithms and sensing technology.

ON Semiconductor announced that SUBARU has selected its image sensing technology to enable camera-based ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) in the car manufacturer's new-generation EyeSight Driver Assist platform. The Levorg, a 2020 All-Wheel Drive Sports Tourer, is the first model to offer the new system.

SUBARU’s EyeSight continues the stereo camera architecture, providing a range of ADAS features including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and pre-collision braking system. As with previous versions of EyeSight, ON Semiconductor's image sensing technology acts as the ‘eyes’ to enable safety functionality. The new-generation Eyesight, announced in the Japan market, provides additional features such as active lane change assist and an emergency driver stop system.


According to the company, ON Semiconductor has shipped over 120 million image sensors into ADAS applications. The company’s image sensing technology provides the resolution and frame rates that enable automotive camera systems to perform at optimal levels, the High Dynamic Range and flexible exposure ratio control required to ensure performance in all natural lighting conditions, and LED flicker mitigation to prevent interference from artificial light sources.
