You can see around corners without relying on advanced optical equipment


Recommended Posts

Chongqing Feilong Jiangli collects the latest information for you, so that you can get the most cutting-edge technical information. With the development of autopilot technology in the direction of wider application, it has made a lot of progress in imaging. However, a technical challenge associated with improving safety is the ability of a self driving vehicle to not have a strong ability to observe the surrounding corners.

Imaging and sensing are the key technologies of automatic driving, and also the key areas of 3D laser scanning system, such as lidar (optical detection and ranging). Such a system allows automatic driving vehicles to detect and avoid obstacles by using rotating laser beams to drive safely. However, the current imaging technology needs to be improved in order to improve the performance of the self driving vehicle. According to foreign media reports, researchers at Boston University have conducted a study to develop a new method that allows artificial intelligence components in autonomous driving vehicles to see the corners of vehicles around the University.

Researchers at Boston University have succeeded in making autonomous vehicles perceive the surrounding corners without using advanced optical devices. The technology is based on a standard digital camera and a special algorithm called "computational periscope".

It works like a toy periscope, a device consisting of two mirrors or prisms that allow people to see objects blocked by obstacles. Although the technology does not rely on mirroring, the principle is similar. The algorithm developed by Boston University uses the fact that light can be reflected from structures similar to walls in different modes to assess the degree of disorder created by different objects. The main task of the AI component is to interpret the scattered reflection image.

      Winter is quickly approaching and that means fewer hours of daylight. To be sure you can be seen by others and your visibility is not compromised, check your vehicle’s lights and wipers, says the non-profit Car Care Council.
      “The days are getting shorter, so it is a good time to check that your vehicle’s wipers and lighting are working properly because the chance of an accident increases if you can’t see or be seen,” said Nathan Perrine, executive director, Car Care Council. “From the driver’s seat you may not notice a light that isn’t working, so check all of your car’s lights and replace those that are out. Also, be sure to inspect and replace wiper blades so you can see clearly when wet weather hits.”
      The wiper system keeps excessive water, snow and dirt from building up on the windshield, maintaining clear visibility. Many factors can accelerate the replacement interval of wipers, including operating conditions (winter conditions are tough on wiper blades), frequency of use, material and type of wipers and sunny weather. In fact, wiper blades can deteriorate faster and need more frequent replacement in desert states.
      Lights are normal wear items that require periodic inspection and replacement. The lighting system provides nighttime visibility; signals and alerts other drivers; and supplies light for viewing instruments and the vehicle’s interior. In addition to replacing dimming, rapidly blinking and non-functioning lights, the following tips can help keep you safe: 
      If there is any doubt on whether or not your headlights should be on, turn them on. Lights not only help you see better in early twilight, they also make it easier for other drivers to see you. Keep headlights, tail lights and signal lights clean. External dirt and debris can dim operational lights from being seen by others. Make sure that your headlights are properly aimed. Misaimed headlights blind other drivers and reduce your ability to see the road. Don’t overdrive your headlights; you should be able to stop inside the illuminated area, otherwise you are creating a blind crash area in front of your vehicle.
