Samsung just announced its first automotive image sensor, the ISOCELL Auto 4AC. 

The ISOCELL Auto 4AC offers advanced 120-decibel (dB) high dynamic range (HDR) and LED flicker migitation (LFM) for surround-view monitors (SVM) or rear-view cameras (RVC) in HD resolution (1,280 x 960 pixels). 

The South Korean company claims the ISOCELL Auto 4AC offers a safer driving experience with the enhanced field of view with the CornerPixel technology. The CornerPixel technology is a specialised pixel structure that mitigates LED light over 90Hz, and embeds two photodiodes within a single pixel area for viewing low-light images. 

The ISOCELL Auto 4AC is available in 1/3.7-inch optical format with 1.2 million µm pixels and an embedded image signal processor. It is currently in mass production. 

In a separate report, Samsung has reportedly signed a $435.6 million deal with Telsa to supply these camera modules. Telsa is said to be launching a new electric vehicle with this camera.
