Has anyone found a way to extract a usable video signal from the Forward Recognition Camera, the windshield-mounted camera found on vehicles with Toyota Safety Sense-P? The camera occupies the ideal spot for a dashcam, but I have no idea if would be suitable for this purpose. In particular, I’d be interested to know the camera’s resolution and frame rate, and whether it is monochrome or color; the published information from Toyota describes the camera only as “CMOS,” with no other details. The Repair Manual and Electrical Wiring Diagram disclose only heater, power, ground, and CAN bus connections on the connector (O7) for the camera ECU: O7-1 (HTR) O7-7 (IGB) O7-10 (GND) O7-5 (CA1P) O7-11 (CA1N) O7-6 (CANH) O7-12 (CANL) Considering the limited bitrates for CAN and the system description in the Repair Manual, it seems clear that the machine vision algorithms are run inside the camera ECU, with only the results, not full-motion video, being sent across the CAN bus. It is tantalizing to have a twelve-position connector with five unknown pins, though—but not quite enough to spend $800 on a spare camera to investigate on the bench.
