 Project objective

Challenge: One of the biggest global challenges in the low-light camera applications e.g. in the video surveillance is the need to significantly improve image quality and identification in low light. Even software enhanced low light images remain blurred and are unsuited to automated image-recognition demonstrating the need to develop more efficient image sensors. Solution: Cameras with Pixpolar’s low light image sensor (MIG technology) capture both visible light and Near Infra-Red (NIR) light that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Cameras equipped with MIG image sensors extend 1.6 times the maximum detection range compared to existing technology. It allows superior identification of objects, and is immune to interference. It also allows a 80% reduction in illumination cost or 60% reduction in the number of cameras required for area surveillance at cost lower than the cost of present technology. A prototype MIG pixel has been made, tested and validated. Business opportunity: MIG image sensor is a game changing technology. The advantages of the MIG technology enables Pixpolar to enter the large global image sensor market (USD 15.2B by 2020). The MIG technology was demonstrated in Horizon 2020 Phase 1 to many camera producers and camera end users. They all saw great market opportunity in embedding MIG image sensors in their cameras. A solid business case can be secured by targeting first 5-10 camera manufacturers, from which further business expansion can be nurtured. In February 2018 the business case was also endorsed by an investment of 2 million EUR from an international investor consortium. The purpose of the MIGOSA project: To accomplish test production of low light MIG image sensors and to start the commercialization of the image sensors. This will open the large business potential in the fields of Security and Surveillance (S&S), night vision, maritime and scientific markets as well as later in the automotive, aviation, drone, industrial, and medical markets.
