New system for high-speed visual detection of traffic signals unveiled
October 26, 2017 — Connected Signals, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has developed an advanced system for visual detection of traffic signals for connected and autonomous vehicles.
Designed to work on its own or in conjunction with the company’s real-time, predictive, traffic-signal data streaming services, the vision system recognizes traffic signals in real time, 4K, 30 FPS video using standard CPUs. With an accuracy rate of better than 98%, signals can be detected under a wide range of conditions, including daylight, night, rain, clouds, and glare. The system does not require the location of signals to be known in advance, and easily recognizes flashing signals due to the 30 FPS frame rate.
Connected Signals will show video demonstrating the system at booth #2028, at the ITS World Conference in Montréal, as well as offering members of the press and other key individuals a limited number of in-vehicle demonstrations on Montréal streets during the World Congress. The demonstrations will combine predictive traffic signal data based on live data provided by the City of Montréal with information obtained from the real-time vision system.
