D52.300.1 UseRCams general specifications
The PReVENT subproject UseRCams aims at the development of a new 3D camera capable to achieve improved VRU protection and collision mitigation.
This document describes the functional requirements and sensor specifications for the intended road safety applications and recognition tasks, comprising:
- near to intermediate front and side distance range of cars (20m-25m)
- lateral proximity of trucks (blind spot surveillance)
- 3D-algorithms for object (obstacles, pedestrian) detection and classification independently of surface reflectivity and ambient illumination conditions
- performance investigations with car/truck demonstrators on typical traffic scenarios and obstacle occurrence
The application- specific requirements for the 3D camera system have been analysed considering various traffic scenarios and relevant accident statistics. For each field of application, suitable design and performance-specifications have been defined and stipulated with respect to the overall goal of traffic object detection and classification.
The R&D challenges associated with the development of a new generation of low-cost 3D-sensors in full custom-design solid-state micro system technology are clearly addressed and the benefits of the UseRCams 3D camera over the state-of-the-art technology are demonstrated.
