The HVC-P2 multi-function sensor module from Omron provides a maximum recognition speed that is 10 times faster than previous Human Vision Components (HVC) system sensors. The module features Omron’s OKAO® vision technology for recognizing human face expression, gender, age, gaze, and blink into a camera module. It can detect a human body four times per second, reliably keeping track of a person within a detection area without fail.
The sensor module consists of a camera and a separate main board, connected via a flexible flat cable. It offers long-distance (50-degree lens) and wide-angle (90-degree lens) detection type camera heads. Equipment embedded with the component can detect and presume attributes and conditions of a user in its vicinity without the user being aware of the camera. This detection ability allows the equipment to offer services based on that user's attributes.
