StradVision, an Artificial intelligence-based (AI) camera perception system, has announced it is developing animal detection capabilities for its SVNet software, which is used in advanced driver assist systems as well as autonomous vehicles.
StradVision CEO Junhwan Kim said in a statement that the new software will “almost completely end” collisions between animals and vehicles. In the U.S. each year there are more than 1.5 million deer-related collisions, which cause around 200 fatalities and 10,000 injuries, and more than $1 billion in property damage.
The function will enable the vehicle to stop ahead of time, or steer the vehicle around the animal, if the computer detects an imminent danger. It can also detect animals in inclement conditions such as rain, snow, fog and darkness, as well as in urban situations.
