FREE SPACE IN THE DIRECTION OF THE WHEEL ON SHORT DISTANCE (URBAN DRIVING APPLICATION) : ON A REGULAR COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE IN REAL TIME
RoadNex Short (free space detection in front of the car) runs on regular computer architectures (even on a smartphone). This module is made for fast sensor fusion with lidar and radar.
It works even on dusty roads, stones (image below), cobblestones, etc …
RoadNex brings interpretation (drivable surface), telemeter (radar; lidar, …) brings measurement precision (in mm).
No need for a big computer (it means deployment cost reduction).
This disrupts some electronics architectures big firms that try to convince car manufacturers to put their computers Inside cars, but they do not bring only computing efficiency (they do), they also bring additional cost, weight, heat, integration room need, etc …
RoadNex runs on a regular ARM chip (for instance) and may be the next generation solution.
The next generation autonomous POD (Shuttle) MILLA made by ISFM uses RoadNex and will be shown at CES Las Vegas in Jan 2019.
Come to see it.
