    1. Perhaps it was their intention to use that image. Anyway, it does look a safety improvement for driving. I do like the thermal IR camera in my Audi. Some fusion of the two with heads up display would be good. I wonder how this approach does in a snowstorm?

    2. ... now, one can drive a car " eyes wide shut " ? ;)

  2. If I'm alone to have this device, that's OK. But if every car is equiped with such active imaging system, what happens?? It's a common problem with active sensing.

  3. Brightway has no defense to this multi vehicle scenario. Every time this questions is raised, it gives arguments which are not at all quantitative.

  4. All the sensors are wonderful extension of the driver's awareness.
    But V2V communication like the AWACS for airplanes will play a crucial role with a situation involving multiple cars.

  5. Hello,
    Although our technology is active (illuminating the scene with pulsed Near Infrared light) we have a few mechanisms to resolve multiple platforms scenario;
    1. each system is illumination in a very low overall duty cycle (i.e. providing the ability to synchronize / de-synchronize systems)
    2. having a high anti-blooming ratio within the pixel (i.e. once a pixel is saturated, not to spill to the neighboring pixel)

  6. I wonder if it would work well in foggy situations. That's a use case that would definitely get me to buy

  7. Fog, rain, dust and flooding light will most likely make probing (in sync with camera capture) fail.

  8. Hello,
    Our technology also provide suburb images also in inclement weather (rain, snow, fog, smog etc.)
    Please have a look at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JigY_LQHyBA
