Canon will supply image sensors to other manufacturers for the first time, anticipating demand for the technology in building self-driving cars, robots and other smart machines. The Japanese maker of digital cameras and office equipment plans to begin selling its CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors within two years and has already assembled a team to launch the business.
