The development of autonomous driving has become something very important for car firms. They not only want to have an autonomous car, they want to control the development of technology that fit these cars to be the most competitive and aggressive in the sector. All brands are working at full capacity, but each does the best so who knows.
One of the more involved is the franco-Japanese Renault-Nissan alliance. As its President Carlos Ghosn confirmed the Alliance has signed an agreement of strategic development with Chronocam. This company has created a new system of artificial vision based on the functioning of the human eye. With them autonomous driving would be easy since they solve many of the problems that currently have this type of vision systems.
With this agreement Renault will benefit in how their driving assistance systems (ADAS) are detected and treated the information they get from abroad. In this way their aid will be better prepared and both firms can increase the pace in the development of autonomous driving.
With this new system created by Chronocam the Aliazna Renault-Nissan will improve its system to avoid collisions both pedestrians, cyclists or animals on the road, detect the dead angles and possible risks that exist in the perimeter of the vehicle; as well as other basic functions to improve the safety of persons travelling on Board of the vehicle and those found abroad.
According to the Renault-Nissan alliance with the new vision system created by Chronocam will reduce the costs of development and implementation of this technology in autonomous vehicles and therefore can create a driving safer for all at the same time more accessible for all budgets.
