Improving Car Safety with Machine Vision - A New Perspective on Autonomous Vehicles

December 12, 2017

12:00-1:30 pm ET


You've just bought your first self-driving car.  You read about the imaging technology behind the control and learn that it's 95% accurate. Does this mean your car will hit a tree one time out of twenty?  What's going on?

This webinar explores the sensing technologies being employed on cars with special emphasis on where and how cameras and image processing are proving to be very valuable, reliable, and safe.  For cameras to be useful, they must provide a constant stream of images and the images must be processed in real-time.  How that occurs and how cameras work together with other sensors is explained in this webinar.
