EETimes reporter Junko Yoshida publishes "ADAS: Key Trends on ‘Perception’" from Autosens Brussels held in mid-September 2019:
  • At this year’s AutoSens in Brussels, assisted driving (ADAS), rather than autonomous vehicles (AV), was in sharper focus. Clearly the engineering community is no longer in denial. Many acknowledge that a big gap exists between what’s possible today and the eventual launch of commercial artificial intelligence-driven autonomous vehicles.
  • Many vendors are adding more intelligence at the sensory node, by fusing different sensory data (RGB camera + NIR; RGB + SWIR; RGB + lidar; RGB + radar) right on the edge.
  • Trieye claims it has found a way to design SWIR by using CMOS process technology. “That’s the breakthrough we made. Just like semiconductors, we are using CMOS for the high-volume manufacturing of SWIR cameras from Day 1,” said Avi Bakal, CEO and co-founder of Trieye.
  • EE Times’ subsequent discussion with Trieye revealed that Outsight will be using Trieye’s SWIR camera. Outsight is promoting its sensor fusion box, scheduled for sampling in the first quarter of 2020.
  • AEye is finishing the combined RGB and lidar system, automotive grade, embedded with AI in the next three to six months. The price will be “less than $1,000.”
