A thermometer works with your vehicle’s dashboard or infotainment system to warn you when the outside temperature drops below freezing. Most versions of temperature warnings don’t take into account the vehicle’s internal temperature, or extra factors such as altitude or moisture levels, just the temperature outside.
TensorFlow is an open-source software library for dataflow programming across a range of tasks. It is a symbolic math library, and is also used for machine learning applications such as neural networks. TensorFlow was developed by the Google Brain team for internal use and was released under the Apache 2.0… read more
Responsible for smaller systems, bespoke processes, task-specific software or components. Tier 2 suppliers work closely with multiple Tier 1 suppliers, and may even be part of the same company. For example, Autoliv is a major steering wheel manufacturer (as a Tier 2 – to many other Tier 1s) and also… read more
Considered to be outside the active supply chain, these companies provide raw materials (such as steel, silicon, carbon fibre, paint, etc) to Tier 2 manufacturers. It is rare for Tier 3 companies to be visible as their products are generic and applicable to any industrial manufacturing process. As such, they… read more
Range imaging camera system that resolves distance based on the known speed of light, measuring the time-of-flight of a light signal between the camera and the subject for each point of the image. ToF camera modules are slightly more expensive than camera modules, however offer much lower resolution. The time-of-flight… read more
Helps keep distance from other vehicles and adapts speed and optionally takes control of steering in lower-speed, dense traffic situations. Traffic Jam Assist is based on the sensors and mechanics of automatic Cruise control, Stop and Go engine control and Lane Keeping Assistance. This relieves drivers so they can focus… read more
Detects traffic light state (proceed, prepare to stop and stop) using a camera to identify traffic lights by looking at shape, colour and position. This may be combined with navigation data, augmented by satellite navigation position (GNSS / GPS) to ensure the correct traffic light is intepreted in busy or… read more
A Traffic Sign Recognition system is a camera-based technology that detects and analyses the traffic signs next to the road. Speed limit signs can for instance be used to control speed of the vehicle. Often the important traffic signs are shown on the dashboard in order to inform the driver…. read more
