Sensors in robots help correctly recognize surroundings and provide the controller or drive with data including images. Renesas offers the wide portfolio of microcontrollers that incorporate a CMOS sensor for object recognition, object detection/ranging (TOF*), touch sensors, and an analog front end (AFE) to connect the sensors. Renesas technology addresses the need for real-time secure data sensing and device control.
