Imaging System Navigates Fog Better Than Human Vision

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
In what could be a boon for autonomous vehicle technology, a system has been developed that can produce images of objects enveloped in fog too thick for human vision to penetrate. Under actual fog conditions, researchers from MIT estimate the system could provide visibility of between 30 and 50 m. The imaging system uses a time-of-flight camera, which fires ultrashort bursts of laser light into a scene and measures the time it takes their reflections to return. Because the patterns produced by fog-reflected light vary according to the fog’s density, researchers developed a...Read full article
