All-weather vision for automotive safety : which spectral band ?

ULIS is a partner of the multi-partner R&D project AWARE, which is financed by the French government's Single Interministerial Fund. This 36-month project, which kicked off in 2014, unites a consortium of then majors French manufacturing companies. The objective is to develop a driver-and pilot-assistance solution to improve decision-making in all types of vehicles (road or airborne). The solution offers reliable detection of obstacles and vulnerable pedestrians in all weather conditions (fog, rain, at night). Unlike other available technologies (visible, NIR, SWIR), ULIS thermal imagers address this need on the 8-14µm (LWIR) spectral range.

Program Manager Emmanuel Bercier recently gave an update on the projet at VISION, a conference held at the “Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie” in Paris on  October 13-14.

VISION (for Vehicle and Infrastructure Safety Improvement in Adverse Conditions and Night Driving) is organized every two years by SIA (the French Automotive Engineers Society). It was created in 2002 and it is now a premier industry event. 

We hope you enjoy the presentation !
