To become the industry standard for ADAS and autonomous vehicles
BrightWay Vision (BWV) provides multi-functional vision & ranging system for the automotive industry, based on active gated imaging, enabling unmatched performance in night, day and inclement weather.
BWV introduces Enhanced Driver Vision (EDV) and is an enabler for Enhanced Computer Vision (ECV) in inclement weather and poor light conditions which supports robust & simplified ADAS and autonomous computation for all driving conditions.
BWV technology provides more robust ADAS functionality and is a crucial part to achieve Class 4 & Class 5 levels of automated driving.
BWV was founded in 2011 as a spin-off from Elbit Systems Ltd., one of the world’s leading defense electronics firms (NASDAQ: ESLT).
BWV sensors have been successfully tested by leading automotive manufacturers and Tier1 suppliers, and demonstrate superior performance in all weather conditions, night or day. The sensors are built around groundbreaking vision and ranging technologies for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Highly Automated Driving (HAD). This technology, combined with other active safety systems, reduces the risk of car accidents and thus saves lives.
One Technology – Multiple Functions
BWV offers all the benefits of a rich, natural and intuitive image and range information even during harsh weather. BWV technology enables real-time Enhanced Computer Vision (ECV) functions, such as object detection and ranging, Free Path Estimation, vehicle positioning that support ADAS functions such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Aid and many other ADAS capabilities.
The technology is characterized by:
- Image for both driver vision and computer vision in one sensor technology
- Robust detection of objects in the vehicle path by suppressing background / foreground
- Enhanced Driver Vision (EDV)
- More robust ADAS and autonomous solution – improved day, night, harsh weather (snow, rain, fog, smog etc.) and any light condition
- Night-time: visual ADAS beyond headlamp range without being blinded by oncoming traffic, rain, snow or fog
- Day-time: higher capabilities in direct sunlight or shadow
- Enabler for more efficient computer vision
- Land marks and icon detection (Localization/vehicle positions)
- Range verification (3D data)
- Redundancy for existing vision & ranging vehicle sensors
- Additional method for imaging and ranging on top of existing technologies
Enhanced Driver Vision (EDV)
BWV Enhanced Driver Vision (EDV) has day and night capability, providing homogenous brightness at all distances at night, high performance in adverse weather and avoiding being blinded by oncoming traffic (anti-glare).
BWV enhanced vision provides the driver with a clear view and improved situation awareness in difficult driving conditions when he really needs it.
By demonstrating BWV’s clear and robust image in all-weather conditions to the driver provides him or her with reassurance in the capability of the ADAS systems.
Enhanced Computer Vision (ECV)
BWV improves the performance of autonomous functionality, responding to threats earlier with lower false positive rates and reduced requirement for driver intervention.
BWV sensors can function as a stand-alone day and night-time driving solution, or as an integrated solution with existing sensing technologies.
The sensors can be integrated into automotive subsystems by Tier1s and OEMs, and are also packaged as a standalone fully-functional system called BrightEye™. The system includes the sensor, the laser light source, the operating code and logic for forward-facing ranging and driver assistance functions.
