Speaker: Dr. Ofer David (BrightWay Vision)
Title: Recent developments in GatedVision Imaging – seeing the unseen
Abstract: Imaging is the basic building block for automotive autonomous driving. Any computer vision system will require a good image as an input at all driving conditions. GatedVision provides an extra layer on top of the regular RGB/RCCB sensor to augment it at night time and harsh weather conditions. GatedVision images in darkness and different weather conditions will be shared. Imagine that you could detect a small target laying on the road having the same reflectivity as the back ground meaning no contrast, GatedVision can manipulate the way an image is captured so that contrast can be extracted. Additional imaging capabilities of GatedVision will be presented.
