AChinese institute claims to have developed a 100-megapixel camera which can produce high-resolution imaging in the fields of aerial mapping, disaster monitoring and intelligent transportation systems.
The IOE3-Kanban camera was developed by the Institute of Optics and Electronics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences making it China’s highest pixel camera, CAS said in a statement. The camera is capable of producing images with 10,240 x 10,240 pixels, the statement added. It is small and light, with its widest part measuring only 19.3 cm, the statement said.
It can be used at temperatures ranging from minus 20 degree C to 55 degree C. Its high sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR) features will be useful in high-resolution imaging in the fields of aerial mapping, city planning, disaster monitoring and intelligent transportation systems. The camera is equipped with advanced optical systems, camera control systems and high-capacity data recording systems, and it has been successful in a trial use as part of a aerial remote-sensing system, it said.
