Single Vision Sensor Object Detection System (US 7389171)

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2008
A vehicular sensing system has been invented that includes a single vision sensor positioned to detect an object. A controller coupled to the sensor generates a safety system signal in response to the object detection signal and to the position of the sensor.

Applications: Object detection for performing collision warning; countermeasure systems operation (detection, classification, tracking and relative distance and velocity estimation of objects).
