A Chinese reserach institution has developed the 100-megapixel IOE3-Kanban camera, capable of producing images with 10,240 x 10,240 pixels. Besides, it is small and light, with its widest part measuring only 4" and can also be used at temperatures from - 20 degrees C - 55 degrees C. The camera can produce high-resolution images for aerial mapping, disaster monitoring and intelligent transportation systems.
Intelligent transportation system aims at providing innovative services relating to transportation and traffic management, enabling the users to be better informed and make safer, more coordinated, and 'smarter' use of transport networks.
The camera is equipped with advanced optical systems, camera control systems and high-capacity data recording systems, and it has proved successful in a trial use as a part of a national aerial remote-sensing system.
A megapixel is one million pixels, and is a term used not only to describe the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays.
