3D ULTRASONIC SENSORS FOR AUTOMOTIVE – DEMOCRATIZING 3D VISION THROUGH SOUND

Project description

When autonomous cars can monitor their close-distance environment

Autonomous cars represent the future of transportation. However, some issues need to be resolved when it comes to the car evaluating close-distance risks. The EU-funded TOPOSENS project aims to provide the first patented three-dimensional ultrasonic sensor technology that will enable the autonomous car to monitor its close-distance environment. The project's 3D technology will be based on a hardware that will include multiple microphones and one transducer. Combined with a patented algorithm, the data will get converted into a 3D point cloud and will detect all obstacles close to the car. It is expected that TOPOSENS will change the dynamics of the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), displacing current technologies.
