Xilinx autonomous vehicle
Guest blog from Giles Peckham Autonomous vehicles are a hot topic at the moment. However, the term can describe a wide range of potential autonomous capabilities. Therefore, the Society of Automotive Engineers has defined five levels of automated driving: Level 0 – The driver has control, with the vehicle issuing warnings. Level 1 – The vehicle and the driver have shared control, for instance adaptive cruise control. Level 2 – The vehicle has full control but the driver must still monitor the vehicle and take control if necessary. Level 3Read More
To correctly perceive and safely interact with their environment, many embedded-vision systems such as vision-guided robots, autonomous cars and drones, rely either upon multiple image sensors of the same type or image sensors combined with a different sensing technology. These additional sensors enable extraction of information which cannot be obtained if just a single image sensor is used, for example determining the distance to an object. Combining and processing the data provided by multiple sensors is known as sensor fusion. When sensors of the same type are used, for exampleRead More
