Testing Automatic Emergency Braking with FLIR Thermal Cameras

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2018, over 6,000 pedestrians’ lives were lost in the United States. A recent AAA study that measured pedestrian detection systems found that traditional automatic emergency braking (AEB) systems using radar and cameras don’t work effectively at night and are often challenged during daylight hours too. As 20 automotive manufactures – representing 99% of the U.S. car market - look ahead to 2022 to meet their commitment of making AEB standard, the industry continues to develop and test new technologies.

Recently, FLIR Systems Inc. contracted VSI Labs to develop a proof-of-concept AEB system that fused perception data from a FLIR ADK’s ethernet-based Boson® thermal camera and a Delphi ESR 2.5 radar. The radar provided range data and the thermal camera provided object detection and classification. VSI recently conducted initial performance tests based on Euro NCAP requirements at the American Center for Mobility (ACM).

Three test cases were conducted in both daylight and darkness, giving six datasets and 35 total test runs using an adult Euro NCAP Pedestrian Target (EPTa). Test results were promising. In all runs for all six test cases, the AEB system successfully brought the VUT to a stop before reaching the EPTa.

Special Automation aus der Cloud

cloud.JPG Immer mehr Teile der industriellen Automatisierung sollen in die Cloud verlegt werden. Nicht nur die in rapide steigenden Mengen generierten Daten, sondern neben Auswerte-, Überwachungs- und Kontrollmechanismen auch Steuerungs-, Regelungs- und sogar Safety-Algorithmen. Wozu eigentlich? Was lässt sich vernünftig in die Cloud verlegen? Was sollte man dabei beachten? Und was ist das überhaupt, die Cloud?
