Collection of Camera Teardowns from our Automotive Track

At Yole Group, we have conducted 35 cameras teardown in 2023, with a focus on DMS and OMS systems

This year, there’s been a notable increase in the development of Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) and Occupant Monitoring Systems (OMS), particularly in the Chinese market. An example is the BYD DMS for Denza D9, crafted for in-cabin monitoring.

DMS, aimed at boosting safety by keeping drivers alert, is on the rise. New European rules starting in 2026 will require DMS in new vehicles, focusing on detecting driver drowsiness and distraction. The U.S. is likely to follow suit, and China might make DMS standards mandatory by 2027. This surge is a big factor in the impressive estimated 34.7% revenue growth in in-cabin camera modules from 2022 to 2028.

We explored external cameras, like the Tesla Right Side repeater camera, showcasing intriguing Image Sensor choices. These external cameras serve various purposes, including Blind Spot Detection, Rear Collision Warning, and Object Detection.

Exploring front cameras, such as the Continental MFC5J3 for Changan Shenlan SL03, we found they’re designed to enhance safety by using recorded video for functions like Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assistance, Pedestrian Detection, and Traffic Sign Recognition. Together, these features contribute to an overall safer driving experience.
