Camera-based driver assistance system

  • 20-Dec-2011 10:05 EST

Magna International’s Magna Electronics operating unit, in conjunction with Mobileye, offers a driver assistance system that uses a single, forward-looking video camera to provide safety and convenience features such as forward-collision and lane-departure warnings. For lane-departure warning, a video camera located behind the windshield is coupled with an advanced image processor to automatically detect lane markings. When the system is engaged, a driver about to cross a detected lane marking without signaling is alerted in two ways: an amber indicator light located in the instrument panel flashes, and an alerting chime of three beeps is played in the left or right speakers, depending on the direction of impending lane departure. The system's forward-collision warning works in a similar fashion with the combination of a warning light and an audible tone to alert the driver.
