Toyoda Institute of Technology Smart Vehicle Research Center is promoting R & D on driving assistance systems that are safe for elderly people and beginner drivers and have less burden on the environment. Specifically, the computer detects various objects such as a pedestrian, a vehicle, a road, a white line, and the like based on information obtained from a sensor such as a TV camera, a laser scanner, a GPS (global positioning system) We are developing technologies that can recognize the running environment. In this research and development, RoboVision 2 is utilized as a tool for developing nighttime Image Recognition technology with cameras.
In this center, in recent years we are studying how to construct a recognition system that is resistant to changes in driving environment such as snowfall, rain, night, fog.At the "10th ZMP Forum" which is held from July 18th, Professor Emeritus Seiichi Mita,Toyoda Institute of Technology Professor will speak on "study of stereo technology robust to changes in driving environment"​ ​

RoboVision 2 utilized at the center is widely used in automotive / parts manufacturers, research institutes such as universities, ADAS, Autonomous Driving technology development and so on. "The 10th ZMP Forum" features RoboVision 2s, which has greatly improved distance accuracy by hardware improvement, software for object detection and inter-vehicle distance measurement by a stereo camera, and Sony IMX390, a high-sensitivity CMOS sensor installed in for cars, is mounted upto 150 m·We will exhibit RoboVision 3, the latest stereo camera with a detection range of 100 ° horizontally.
ZMP will continue to contribute to the improvement of Autonomous Driving technology through ADAS · Autonomous Driving development support tools, sensors and services.
