Denso develops new vision sensor for night driving

DENSO has launched a new standard vision sensor, which will improve driving safety at night.

The system will automatically activate emergency braking when obstacles are detected, including cyclists, pedestrians, road signs, driving lanes and other road users.

The sensor will work in conjunction with a millimetre-wave radar sensor, which will allow cars to activate emergency braking when obstacles are identified. This new technology is designed to improve safety in low-light situations.

The new system drastically improves night vision.

A unique lens specifically designed for low-light use is utilised as part of the sensor, as well as a solid-state imaging device with a higher sensitivity than standard.

The new sensor system is further punctuated by improved algorithm’s for white-line and road-edge detection. This will broaden the operating range of lane-keeping assistance technology and lane departure alert functions.

Critically, the improved sensor is 40 per cent smaller than the previous models, which will reduce costs and simplify the installation process.
