Seeing with Sound: AI-Based Detection of Participants in Automotive Environment from Passive Audio

Existing ADAS solutions for car environmental awareness (cameras, LiDAR, ultrasonic, etc.) require targets to be in a clear line of sight from the sensor. The target must be illuminated by some source of energy, so systems are affected by dust, weather, lighting, and obstacles. We address those limitations using a passive acoustic solution that “listens” to the environment. It can hear pote... » read more
