With urbanization on the rise, cities are experiencing increased car traffic alongside an increasing number of car accidents. Most crashes occur due to human error, but technology is coming to address this issue. Despite growing public skepticism of relinquishing control over cars, tech companies like Intellias have collaborated with automotive industry leaders to equip vehicles with cutting-edge pedestrian detection software to identify people who are unseen by the driver.

A recent Intellias whitepaper shares the latest solutions in developing pedestrian safety systems for self-driving vehicles. In the whitepaper you will find:

  • An overview of pedestrian safety with different levels of autonomous driving 

  • An overview of existing use cases of AI-powered self-driving cars

  • Descriptions of the tools and methods behind pedestrian detection systems, including sensors used and methods of real-time data acquisition and image processing

  • Explanations of AI/ML-enabled technology for object detection, the YOLOv3 (You Only Look Once v3) algorithm, and the Kalman filter, among others

  • Examples of Intellias expertise building trustworthy pedestrian detection software and relevant R&D projects with neural recognition

Get your copy of the Autonomous Vehicle Safety whitepaper and keep your finger on the pulse of the latest autonomous driving trends.
