FREE SPACE DETECTION BY CAMERA ON REAL WORLD AREAS NEAR PARIS WITH POOR QUALITY OF BITUMEN ON THE ROAD : CRACKS, PATCHES, ...

real world road scene free space detection with RoadNex

 

Some companies try to detect freespace with a regular camera, without IR (SWIR etc …), without fusion with LIDAR, just because it allows low cost applications especially for aftermarket. Here is an example of the NEXYAD module RoadNex. One can see that there are a lot of cracks, patches (highlights and dark zones), and that RoadNex still detects free space in front of the car. Especially useful in the roundabout (see video). Note : It runs on a regular chip (real time on a regular smartphone, for instance). It means that cost of deployment is "cost of software only", NO NEED for a special smart hardware architecture (NVIDIA ...) or a special camera. This is the differentiation of NEXYAD : we do not try to provide "perfect and beautiful" detection (that is already achieved by MOBILEYE for instance, but, we think, beyond market price for markets we target), but rather an efficient quick detection for some valuable functions at market price. Our free space detection is currently under integration into dashcams https://lnkd.in/g_jSeSu
