LG teams up with Mercedes Benz to launch a new intelligent camera system.
Video camera in cars is stale news but if taken to a higher level it gives rise to an intelligent camera system.
South Korean consumer electronics giant LG has teamed up with Mercedes-Benz, both of them are working on a brand new intelligent camera system that will do its bit in advancing the world of automated driving forward.
This next-generation camera system for automated driving would enable the driver to transfer several driving tasks over to the intelligent vehicle.
This collaboration would look into camera systems for environment perception. In order to help out in this collaboration, the team at Mercedes-Benz has decided to license portions of its 6D Vision technology to LG.
This particular joint venture will allow LG to make use of their extensive experience and comprehensive R&D capacity in camera systems, computer vision algorithms and electronics technologies in order to bring current ADAS technologies to the next level down the road.
LG also intends to transfer technologies from its home entertainment and mobile communications businesses all the way to automotive components, so that they can offer the best technologies and the highest performance.
Some of LG’s ADAS portfolio would include forward-looking Single and Stereo Camera Systems for Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), High Beam Assist (HBA) as well as Pedestrian and Bicyclist Protection. Apart from that, Driver State Monitoring Systems would be able to help identify the driver’s biometric state, monitor and analyze the driver’s attention or drowsiness level, all the while detecting the driver’s eyes position with high accuracy. In addition, Surround View Monitoring Systems would assist the driver with parking maneuvers through the display of environment and detecting obstacles.
