Mobileye has developed following of algorithums for vehicle safety application such as
The lane detection algorithm (LDA) detects the driving lane boundaries and estimates the geometry of the lane in the 3D world coordinates relative to the vehicle. The LDA supports various Applications:
(1) Lane departure warning – issue a warning when the vehicle is veering off the lane unintentionally, i.e. without signaling.
(2) Lane keeping assist – when the vehicle is veering off the lane unintentionally, apply a steering torque to prevent the vehicle from exiting the lane.
(3) Lane centering – continuously control the steering wheel to keep the vehicle in the lane center.
Mobileye Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
Rear-end accidents are the most common accident types. The importance of keeping sufficient headway for reduction of accidents is recognized by traffic authorities worldwide and is being enforced in an increasing number of countries. Even when sufficient headway is kept a momentary lack of concentration can lead to a situation where a rear-end collision can occur.
Mobileye’s Vision- only Vehicle Detection provides a Forward Collision Warning (FCW) in situations where the host vehicle is approaching a preceding vehicle with a high closing rate. This FCW alerts the driver of the critical situation and therefore can prevent or mitigate an accident.
Mobileye Headway Monitoring and Warning (HMW)
Headway is defined as the time it will take to reach the current position of a vehicle driving ahead, and is calculated by dividing the distance to the vehicle ahead with the travel speed of the host.
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road users, whilst also being the most difficult to observe both in day and in night conditions. Pedestrians in the vehicle path or walking into the vehicle path are in danger of being hit causing severe injury both to the pedestrian and potentially also to the vehicle occupants.
Mobileye uses a classic approach of Model based detection where a “typical set of models” (depending on what is being detected) is employed. These models contain sets of standardized models, for example in pedestrians arms, legs, head and torso. Based on these detection , Mobileye generates PCW (pedestrian Collision Warning) which alerts driver when a condition of collision against a pedestrian/cyclist arises.
Mobileye Collision Mitigation by Braking
Automatic Emergency Braking System detects imminent collision situations, warns the driver, pre-conditions the brake, and as last resort triggers an active braking to avoid the accident or to reduce the accident energy.
Head Lamp Control
Mobileye’s Intelligent High Beam Control (IHC) automatically controls the head light beam to support the driver to use high beam to full extent. The function benefits both the driver and other road users as high beam glare from preceding or oncoming vehicles is a major contributor to accidents, where vehicle high beams can momentarily ‘dazzle’ other road users and contribute to accidents.
Traffic Sign Detection
Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) is a driver support function which can be used to notify and warn the driver which restrictions may be effective on the current stretch of road. Examples for such regulations are ‘speed limit zones’. The system can help the driver to maintain a legal speed, obey local traffic instructions, or urban restrictions.
