Realization of Radar-Vision Integration Machine Based on FETMX8MP-C SoM
Road sensors are mainly used to collect data information on road conditions and provide raw data for the roadside sensing network. The requirements for intelligent transportation are developing towards informationization, intellectualization, real-time, and accuracy, and the perception of road information is becoming more and more sophisticated, thus putting forward higher demands for road sensors.
Compared to traditional sensors that can only obtain information about the lane and speed of a vehicle in a section or at a specific moment. The radar-vision fusion integrated system utilizes mmWave radar, high-definition video processing, and AI deep learning algorithms to achieve all-weather and holistic perception of the road.
It can detect the flow, speed, type, queue length, and debris of vehicles on the road.
It can detect and identify accidents such as traffic congestion, breakdowns, and collisions on the road, as well as pedestrians, obstacles, and animals. It is also capable of automatically issuing warnings.
The radar-vision fusion integrated system has a wide range of applications and can be installed on the sides of roads. It can be installed independently on poles or utilize existing road lamp poles. It is commonly applied in crucial areas of urban transportation , key bridges, tunnels, key sections of highways, and critical monitoring areas.
