HVC-P2 B5T-007001 image sensor

The HVC-P2 B5T-007001 from Omron is a built-in human condition recognition unit dubbed a ‘Human Vision Components’ (HVC) system, with a maximum recognition speed 10 times greater than that of previous models.

The HVC is an image-sensing unit incorporating's proprietary "OKAO® Vision" technology for recognizing human face expression, gender, age, gaze and blink into a camera module. The HVC-P2 boasts a maximum recognition speed 10 times that of a previous model introduced in March 2014, making it possible to detect a human body four times per second (*), keeping track of a person within a detection area.

Customers can also choose from two camera heads, a long-distance detection type and a wide-angle detection type, depending on their specific application purposes. A piece of equipment embedded with the HVC-P2 can detect and presume attributes and conditions of a user coming in its vicinity, without the user knowing the presence of a camera, making it possible to provide services deemed most suitable in view of the user's attributes.

Features Applications
  • 10 types of image-sensing functions are available for recognizing human conditions in various perspectives:
  1. Face detection
  2. Human body detection
  3. Hand detection
  4. Face direction estimation
  5. Gaze estimation
  6. Blink estimation
  7. Age estimation
  8. Gender estimation
  9. Expression estimation (five facial expressions: neutral, happiness, surprise, anger & sadness)
  10. Face recognition - Recognition and presumption come out in the form of digital data including the number of detection's, angles and age as well as text data including facial expressions and gender.
  • The HVC-P2 consists of a camera and a separate main board, connected via a flexible flat cable, allowing it to be installed on the edge of a flat display unit, which was difficult with previously available all-in-one units.
  • Output image can be chosen from three types: no image output, 160x120 pixels and 320x240 pixels.
  • Digital signage
  • Vending machines
  • AC units

Machine vision with Omron's HVC

Giving machines the power of vision gives them the ability to interact with people in a much more natural way, but integrating this capability was previously a complex and difficult task. With Omron's Human Vision Components that's all changed.
