September 27, 2016, East Palo Alto, CA – In-depth analysis of most recent technology developments and evaluation of current market trends coincides with firm’s Cars and Cocktails affair.
Sensing systems are the most important enablers for adding intelligence in the automotive world.
With Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) becoming common in high end cars, multiple cameras being used on cars is becoming standard. Most of the concerns regarding safety, such as blind spot warnings, forward collision warning, and avoidance, have been diminished come up because of the use of cameras and advancements in machine vision technologies.
With the aim of making cars safer to drive, new features are being added to the driving assist systems. Most of these systems are enabled by sensing technologies. To overcome the limitations of traditional cameras, new sensors such as Radar, LiDAR and ultra sonic are also being used to enhance the features for ADAS.
There is also considerable traction in the autonomous driving area as most car companies, along with companies such as Google, are spending time and resources on the automotive research. Here, sensing systems play the key enabler role, as creating an accurate perception of the surrounding environment is an important parameter for such systems.
Sensing systems are also used for in-car monitoring, driving analysis, and car security, adding additional safety features to automobiles. A brief overview of sensing systems and their applications is given in the following slides.
