Sensor Concepts and Image Processing

We research novel sensor technologies and computer vision algorithms to advance safety and convenience functions in future vehicles. Our research activities include the latest in Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR), radar, and camera technologies.  We develop image processing and perception algorithms to detect both static and dynamic objects and to understand the environment that surrounds the vehicle.  Eventually the car could be a second set of eyes for the driver, helping perceive potential and imminent dangers that the driver may not see on his or her own.
