The Coherent PowerMax Pro OEM is a laser power sensor, combining the response speed of a photodiode with the broadband wavelength coverage, large detection area, dynamic range, and laser damage resistance of a thermopile.
The camera is also armed with 2PD (dual photodiode) autofocus - a technology commonly seen in professional dSLR cameras, which results in a much faster autofocus speed.
The robots will be self-powered through a simple photodiode which turns light into an electrical current.
To take high-quality photographs, CMOS image sensors need to hold as much light, or photons, as possible and transmit the right color information to the photodiode. Such requirements were resolved by the introduction of Samsung's ISOCELL technology in 2013.
