Wideye – in collaboration with Sony Depthsensing Solutions – has successfully incorporated a Time of Flight (ToF) camera in a vehicle B-pillar. The prototype will be demonstrated at the AutoSens show, from 12 to 14 September in Brussels.
As the automotive market relentlessly evolves towards autonomous vehicles, more and more sensors will be installed in vehicles. Integration is critically important: the sensors must be able to perform efficiently at all times, the system must be reliable and the overall look must be aesthetically pleasing – a triple challenge which Wideye and Sony Depthsensing Solutions (“SDS”) jointly addressed by integrating a Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera, which is a type of scanner-less LiDAR, in the B-pillar. The market has started to install cameras and radar sensors – but until now, not LiDAR sensors – in the B-pillar since it is the ideal location for ADAS and telematics functionalities, such as parking space detection, facial recognition required for access control, lane detection and more.
Wideye and SDS decided to join forces […] Read more.
