To achieve 24/7 autonomous driving, vehicles first need to be able to see and understand the roads and their surroundings, with complete accuracy, in all weather and lighting conditions. Leveraging years of experience in developing thermal cameras for civil and military uses, AdaSky has developed a breakthrough sensing and perception solution that allows autonomous vehicles to reliably detect, segment, and analyze pedestrians, animals, objects, and road conditions in day or night, regardless of weather condition.
The first high-resolution, thermal camera for autonomous vehicles with minimal size, weight, and power consumption and no moving parts – at a price suited for mass market.
From FIR camera to fusion-ready, deep-learning based computer vision algorithms
2.6cm in diameter by 4.3cm in length
Developed according to quality (ASPICE) and safety (ISO 26262) standards
For superior image performance
For machine learning algorithms
AdaSky’s advanced thermal sensing solution allows the vehicle to sense and analyze its surroundings by passively collecting FIR signals through detection of thermal energy radiated from objects and their body heat. AdaSky’s image processing and computer vision algorithms process the signals collected by the camera to provide accurate object detection and scene analysis, giving the vehicle a new layer of information.
Captures differences in temperature of 50mK, enabling it to detect living creatures, cars and other man-made objects
Does not illuminate the scene, or create interference with other systems or the environment, and uses less power
Supports high resolution video, giving it superior object detection performance
Does not get blinded by oncoming headlights or direct sunlight
Has been used for decades in other vertical industries, making it a mature and proven concept
Scalable technology, enabling a low-cost pricing structure
