AdaSky Commended by Frost & Sullivan for its Far IR Sensor Technology that Enables All-weather Autonomous Driving
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

Leveraging deep learning and advanced machine vision, AdaSky improves the speed and resolution of object detection, classification, and segmentation

LONDON, Dec. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --  Based on its recent analysis of the Israeli infrared (IR) sensors market for autonomous vehicles, Frost & Sullivan recognises AdaSky ® with the 2018 Israeli Technology Innovation Award for its high-resolution, solid-state passive far IR (FIR) thermal imaging technology. The solution offers superior detection and identification of any issue that compromises image quality and helps overcome the hindrance to present a clear, precise image. This capability will be extremely valuable in autonomous driving by supporting operation in any weather or lighting condition.

2018 Israeli Infrared Sensors for Autonomous Vehicles Technology Innovation Award

"Typical FIR sensors or cameras for auto night-vision rely on a shutter, which could require the sensor to be shut down to perform recalibration. In partnership with STMicroelectronics, AdaSky developed an image signal processor (ISP) chip that eliminates the need for a shutter so that the sensor can work 24/7," said Principal Analyst, Peter Adrian. "AdaSky's sensor, Viper, uses high-end, proprietary deep learning algorithms based on convolutional neural networks to ensure more accurate object detection, classification, and scene analysis, which ultimately offers the driver an early warning of a pending issue or challenge."

The thermal sensors can capture objects that otherwise elude visible light cameras, radar, or Lidar by detecting the IR thermal radiation emitted by an object and converting the information into a thermal image. Leveraging image processing algorithms and computer vision, the sensors operate seamlessly in changing lighting conditions, clutter, or bad weather, and can detect, segment and analyze an object, be it a car, pedestrian, bicycle or motorcycle. Viper operates in the FIR range (8-14 micrometers), which is very effective in hot weather.

AdaSky successfully tailors mature FIR sensing technology to meet the situational awareness demands of autonomous vehicles. The FIR thermal imaging cameras with different fields of view support detection in multiple directions among connected cars to provide a more comprehensive picture of the vehicle's environment.

As passive FIR sensors do not require huge amounts of energy to illuminate a target object and are not susceptible to interference from neighboring sensor signals, they can work to detect and cover a vehicle's surroundings without ever upsetting the sensors of other vehicles. Viper is unique in that it does not require a shutter (which other FIR cameras typically do), because it uses the startup's shutterless, non-uniformity correction, and due to the dedicated ISP chip. Viper is the smallest FIR sensor on the market which makes it highly cost-effective. In fact, Viper costs less than traditional IR night-vision sensors and are unaffected by oncoming headlights, direct sunlight, or changes in lighting.

"AdaSky excels at coordinating and scaling its production capabilities to meet rising production requirements. The company is now focusing on collaborative development, prototyping, and proof-of-concept with OEMs," noted Adrian. "It excels further at being able to configure its FIR sensing technology to optimally support different types or categories of autonomous vehicles. Overall, its technology, which helps generate reliable images of the surroundings to enable fully autonomous vehicles, has positioned AdaSky for exponential growth in the future."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
