POLKA, the prototype polarization camera developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen, is a special camera designed to capture and measure the polarization state of light, pixel by pixel. 

Suitable for industrial use, the prototype polarization camera offers optimized control and special algorithms for analyzing sensor signals. Its special image sensors are produced following a patent-protected manufacturing process.

POLKA is calibrated during manufacturing, so it’s ready to go when you are. The hardware design of our camera can be modified to suit customer wishes and the software can be enhanced to include task-specific image processing and evaluation algorithms for specific requirements.
