ADAS & AV

Providing Clarity in Low Visibility

The ability to see and operate in low and challenging visibility conditions has been a major hurdle in the creation of fully functional automated driving solutions.

Under common low-visibility and adverse conditions, like nighttime, haze, glare, and others, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicles (AV) fail to perform. Current sensor fusion solutions, which rely mostly on radar and visible cameras, cannot provide a clear enough view of the road ahead. They fail to deliver the critical information required for making smart driving decisions and thus compromise vehicle safety. Solving this problem is crucial, as most severe road accidents occur in low-visibility conditions.

Unlocking Road Safety with CMOS-based SWIR Sensing

TriEye Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) sensing solutions enable precise hazard detection even under the most challenging visibility conditions (e.g. sun-glare, fog, nighttime). Integrating TriEye’s SWIR sensing system in ADAS & AV will reduce human error and lower the number of accidents caused by limited visibility.

TriEye offers a unique CMOS-based Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) sensing solution that can be fabricated at scale, enabling clear vision in adverse weather and low light conditions. Additionally, it can be mounted behind glass and seamlessly integrated with existing vision algorithms used in ADAS. TriEye’s solution provides HD resolution with low power consumption, a small form factor and a price 1000 times lower than current InGaAs-based technologies.

By introducing this first of its kind, mass-produced SWIR sensor, road safety and visibility are dramatically enhanced as it provides a quality image where standard cameras are blinded. TriEye empowers ADAS & AV sensor fusion by adding mission-critical data that creates an accurate perception of the environment.

TriEye’s SWIR sensing solution reveals visible and invisible road hazards, saving lives on the road in all scenarios.
