Israeli startup TriEye is collaborating with a Toyota subsidiary to evaluate a world-first infrared system which will improve driver vision during times of reduced visibility.
According to the [U.S.] National Safety Council, while we do only one-quarter of our driving after dark, 50 percent of traffic deaths happen at night. “Traveling at night will have its own challenges versus during the day,” said Ian Hoey of the California Highway Patrol’s Office of Community Outreach and Media Relations. “Some hazards at night include reduced visibility and the potential for increased wildlife activity in the roadways.”
…TriEye says Sparrow’s SWIR technology enhances visibility at night and during adverse weather. The sensor is particularly effective, according to TriEye, at identifying things like black ice, dark clothed pedestrians, and cyclists – all under low-light or other common low visibility conditions. In addition, TriEye’s SWIR camera can be integrated as a standard visible camera. It can reuse existing visible image AI algorithms, which saves the effort of recollecting and annotating millions of miles.
