The two companies plan to explore the potential of chip-level stabilization technology beyond the field of digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras. Through its collaboration with MEMS Drive, SmartSens will introduce chip-level antivibration technology into CMOS image sensors and make this technology available in nonmobile applications enabled by artificial intelligence, such as security and machine vision. These sensors will feature added stabilization control as well.
