VISDOM.
All-Weather
Automotive Camera System

VISDOM is a market-ready CMOS-based imaging system that enhances the safety and visual perception of driver-assisted and autonomous vehicles. Powered by Bright Way Vision’s proprietary GatedVision technology, VISDOM has been tested and proven fully operational under stress-test weather and lighting conditions: fog, rain, snow, darkness, and glare blindness. Designed for your AI recognition system, VISDOM’s algorithm is also the only one that uniquely alerts for untrained objects, with a DB set of over 100,000 classified, annotated, road-related objects. Whatever the environment or conditions, if there’s a hazardous object, VISDOM will see it.

True All-Weather, Nonstop Clarity

True All-Weather, Nonstop Clarity

in fog, rain, snow, darkness, or facing glare   

Variable Long-Range, Continuous Sharpness

Continuous Sharpness

High-contrast, high-resolution, highly-identifiable across all ranges

Variable Long Range

Variable Long Range

Up to 300m of full-clarity; over three times higher than a standard camera

AEB Optimizing

AEB Optimizing

Maximizes features like AEB functionality to dramatically enhance VRU’s safety

Continuous Sharpness/Contrast

Market-Ready

Tested and proven CMOS-based gated sensor with a pre-classified annotated database. Road qualified.

VISDOM is fully commercialized and economically designed, allowing easy integration into the sensor suite of a wide array of vehicles.

VISDOM's all-weather automotive camera system includes: CMOS-based NIR gated sensor, specially-designed optics and lenses, a pulse-based NIR illuminator, and a classified annotated database

GatedVision, a Road-Proven Technology

Through complete darkness

Results:
Definite long-range pedestrian and animal (VRU) detection.

Through heavy rain (50mm/hr.) and darkness (rain chamber)

Results:
Clear long-range VRU detection with droplet-reflection suppression.

Through thick fog

Results:
All tested target-types identified throughout the entire range. Over three times the visibility range compared to a standard camera while eliminating fog backscatter

Through heavy snow

Results:
The bottom three frames correspond to three range slices. The upper right is a state-of-the-art reference camera and the top left is GatedVision.
