GatedVision
Technology

See Through Adverse Weather, Darkness, and Glare

GatedVision provides clear, complete, homogeneous, long-range imaging. Developed by Bright Way Vision and protected by 26 patents, GatedVision originates from military-grade vision technology adapted and qualified for the automotive industry.

Instinctive Awareness

Untrained object-detection,
with variable range/speed

VRU Detection

Empowers perception of all road users, including dark clothing

All-Weather AEB

Enables robust detection for the safest operation

GatedVisionTM provides a clear, complete, homogeneous, long-range imaging. Developed by Bright Way Vision, and protected by 26 patents, GatedVisionTM originates from military-grade vision technology adopted and qualified for the automotive industry.

GatedVision uses eye-safe NIR illumination pulses to generate ‘slices’ of the space ahead, while thousands of synchronized micro exposures of the gated camera build a complete illuminated image of the road ahead.

The camera sensor generates an image with the right amount of illumination in every range without affecting other ranges, and collects data from predetermined distances (slices) ahead of the vehicle while completely ignoring interferences along the way; such as rain, fog, mist, snow, and backscatter interference.

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.
