Quantum Signal's image-processing technology called ESARR (enhanced situational awareness via road sign recognition) captures road sign images from video or still images, reads the sign text, interprets the symbols, then visually communicates the information to the driver in real time. This system is based on a combination of advanced image-processing techniques that operate robustly day and night across weather conditions. Currently being developed for defense applications, ESARR will be available to provide safety, navigation, and telematics-related information in passenger cars, trucks, and other vehicles. ESARR also uses its vision-based technology to integrate several core safety components, including lane-departure warnings and a real-time synthetic radar that accurately provides headway monitoring and warning. This technology uses a single windshield-area mounted monocular grayscale camera and computing resources and requires no additional information from the vehicle.
