 New technology gives smart cars ‘x-ray’-like vision

The autonomous vehicle uses game changing tools that allows it to ‘’see the world around it using x-ray style vision that penetrates through to pedestrian blind spots.

The technology has been developed as part of a project funded by the iMOVE Cooperative Research Centre in collaboration with the University of Sydney’s Australian Centre for Field Robotics and Australian connected vehicle company Cohda Wireless. iMove has today released its new findings in a final report following three years of research and development.

The technology’s applications, which are being commercialised by Cohda, involve an emerging and promising technology for intelligent transportation systems (ITS) called cooperative or collective perception (CP).

Using roadside ITS information sharing units (‘ITS stations’), vehicles can share what they ‘see’ with others using vehicle-to-X (V2X) communication.

This system significantly increases…
