expanding to new horizons
Today’s cars are more autonomous and need more cameras and displays to help us drive — or to drive for us. That’s why testing image quality is now essential in the automotive sector. To define our testing methodology dedicated to automotive, we at DXOMARK consider all different kinds of camera applications such as rearview mirrors, front view, road-facing, in-cabin monitoring, and videoconferencing systems, along with their related imaging challenges: wide dynamic range, LED flicker, night vision, moving objects, flare, etc.We have built an array of objective, laboratory-based tests and a set of perceptual analyses performed in real-life conditions and covering different lighting conditions and scenarios. As members of the P2020 standards committee, our experts have helped the industry match the needs of end-users; and our flare, flicker, and 150 dB dynamic range solutions have been used to define the metrics of the standard.With unparalleled expertise in camera and display evaluation, DXOMARK’s experts can provide advice for improving the quality and safety of everything from automotive camera lenses to dashboard screens. Our audio experts can provide standard audio metrics as well as perceptual evaluation of sound quality for recording and playback in lab or real-life conditions for such applications as calls or video conferencing.
