Auto night vision with white and NIR light diodes integrated in a single GaN laser device

21-11-2022 | Kyocera AVX | AI

Kyocera Corporation has created an Automotive Night Vision System that can accurately identify collision-risk objects in low-visibility driving conditions, such as at night, or in fog, rain, snow, or smoke. The system is expected to lower traffic accidents and provide safer driving.

The system provides the first headlight in the world that emits white (RGB) and near-infrared (NIR) light on the same optical axis; this provides higher accuracy object recognition than alternative technologies. The system combines RGB-NIR sensors and a unique 'Image-Fusion AI Recognition Technology' created by the company for high performance object recognition. Also, it has produced another generative AI feature to create training data for more cost-effective learning and product development.

The company's new night vision system will help stop traffic accidents by informing drivers of hazards in adverse driving environments, a benefit made possible only with the innovative integration of visible and NIR images utilising proprietary fusion recognition AI technology.
