Detection of pedestrians and cyclist outside a line of sight

Project description

New frequencies for improved assistance on the road

Even the best of drivers cannot always avoid crashes, particularly if caused by sudden and dangerous behaviours of pedestrians, cyclists, or poorly visible objects on the road. Existing technological solutions designed to improve safety and assistance, like optical camera solutions, Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) systems and high frequency radars, are based only on systems of undisturbed sightline to objects, which omits many dangerous events. The EU-funded DeepSight project will address this problem by developing an innovative detection system that will employ a low-frequency radar with a resolution designed to detect cyclists, pedestrians and objects outside a line of sight. It will guarantee road safety and effective assisting drivers in their proper decisions.
