Honda will teach cars to see through the wallsOctober 5, 2018
The company Honda introduced a new security system Smart Intersestion
Honda has demonstrated the work of the new security system, designed to reduce the number of accidents at intersections. The Smart Intersection technology uses the capabilities of a vehicle communication protocol with infrastructure (V2X), object recognition software and cameras installed at traffic lights.
The basis of the Smart Intersection is four cameras installed at each corner of the intersection and fixing objects at a distance of up to 91 meters. The image from them is transmitted to a computing platform, where a 360-degree picture of the terrain is created using Honda-developed software, vehicles and other moving objects (pedestrians and cyclists) are classified.
The relevant information is transmitted to the cars connected to the system, the on-board computer of which decrypts the data and outputs audiovisual warnings, helping the driver to take the right actions to avoid collisions. This allows cars to literally see through the walls of buildings, regardless of weather conditions, making the passage of intersections safer. According to statistics, it is up to 40 percent of the accidents that kill seven thousand Americans every year.
The pilot launch of the system, developed with the support of Marysville authorities, became part of the project 33 Smart Mobility Corridor, under which a zone for safe movement of unmanned and network-connected vehicles will be created on the 56-kilometer stretch of Highway 33
