New Thermal Infrared Sensor Techniques for Vehicle Blind Spot Detection 970176

Vehicle Blind Spot Detection (BSD) represents a logical first step towards a comprehensive Collision Avoidance strategy as envisioned in plans for the Intelligent Transportation System. BSD systems have been developed based on a number of technologies, but cost and performance issues have prevented widespread commercial success, particularly for light vehicles.
This paper presents a new Vehicle Blind Spot Detector. The device is based on a recently developed, novel thermal infrared sensor technology.
A description of the operation of the sensor is provided, together with a brief comparison with existing technologies. Experimental data are also presented, showing results of operation of the sensor.
