World’s First Wraparound View for Vehicles (Fujitsu)
Fujitsu unveils the world’s first vehicle wraparound real time video camera. Lost? This system uses four cameras that provide a real time 360 degree view of things surrounding you.
Sweet isn’t it?
Kawasaki, Japan, November 17, 2008 — Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. announced today the development of a new video-processing technology that enables a complete wraparound view of a vehicle’s perimeter in real time, to enhance the driver’s field of view. The new driver assistance technology adapts to different driving situations, enabling the driver to peripherally view the entire surroundings of a vehicle, from the point of view and field of view that is most appropriate for each driving situation. The technology improves driving safety by assisting the driver in a variety of situations, such as parking, passing on a narrow street, and seeing around corners at intersections with poor sightlines.
Details of this new technology will be presented at the 15th World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems & ITS America’s 2008 Annual Meeting and Exposition, being held from November 16 to 20 in New York.
