Camera

A camera is a device used to capture images, usually photographs, either singly or in sequence such as with video cameras.

A camera that takes pictures singly is sometimes called a photo camera to distinguish it from a video camera.

Cameras may work with the visual spectrum or other portions of the electromagnetic spectrum.

CES 2015: This Jaguar F-Type Can Tell If You're Too Tired To Drive

Popular Science (Jan. 7, 2015) Soon, your car will know when you’re not fit to drive it. An Australian startup called Seeing Machines has created an in-dashboard camera that uses facial recognition technology to determine if a driver is too tired or too distracted to be behind the wheel.
