Report: Fujitsu develops radar technology for cars that detects people, obstacles
28 October 2012
The Nikkei reports that Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. has developed radar technology for cars capable of warning drivers about people appearing suddenly from behind walls and objects in the dark. Commercialization is targeted for 2014.
Fujitsu plans to develop an early-warning system that sounds an alarm when it detects approaching people or hidden objects as drivers back into a parking space.
The radar system employs lasers normally used in optical communications gear to detect hard-to-see objects. The radar can recognize toys and other objects, and can even detect people and animals emerging from behind an obstacle, as well as children playing in the street
