It comes with wide dynamic range (WDR) of 120db.

The Samsung Automotive Image Sensor enables detection of objects even in high-contrast environments, such as backlighting and exiting a tunnel. Its high performing WDR capability conveys accurate information to help drivers to prevent accidents. it is designed to endure extreme temperatures from −40° to 105°C to satisfy all AEC-Q100 Grade 2 requirements.

The company says that the Exynos Auto and ISOCELL Auto products will be demonstrated at the International Suppliers Fair (IZB) in Wolfburg, Germany, from October 16 to 18th.
