Abstract

This chapter starts with a theoretical definition of the sensor technology and describes the main parameters suitable to classify cameras. The section continues with a brief discussion on optics and sensors. A section then is dedicated to camera-specific software such as firmwares, API, or dedicated SDK. The last section describes mechanical issues specific to vehicular applications.
