Renault and Chronocam team up for autonomous technology

While Chronocam develops biologically inspired vision sensors and computer vision solutions for automotive applications, their tie up with Renault will help the latter’s development of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving.

So how will Chronocam’s tech actually help Renault? Chronocam has in-depth knowledge about neuromorphic vision sensing, that mimics the human eye. This will help the assistance systems detect people and obstacles quicker, while also enhancing the robustness of the camera to adapt and detect in varied climatic conditions.

Reports add that the overall cost of implementation will fall and this will make ADAS accessible to more vehicles. It is expected that driver assistance, collision avoidance, pedestrian protection, blind spot detection and other critical functions of both manned and autonomous vehicles will improve dramatically.

“We are pleased to be able to work with a global leader and innovator like Renault to apply our technology in a practical way to the challenges of connected, smart transportation,” said Luca Verre, CEO and co-founder of Chronocam.
