Outsight has developed a Semantic 3D Camera, which is equipped with a low-power laser to determine the chemical composition of various objects. The system can help autonomous vehicles to better navigate and improve traffic safety.
Such cameras can play an important role in future robotic devices, including cars of the 4th and 5th levels. In the near future, they will begin to be used in human-controlled vehicles such as construction and mining equipment, helicopters..

The built-in sensor system detects chemistry with a low-power, eye-safe long-range broadband laser that enables real-time hyperspectral analysis. The Outsight camera also has functions for collecting useful information and classifying objects..
The device will allow unmanned vehicles to fix the approach of pedestrians and cyclists from afar, recognizing their skin, and make the necessary adjustments to the further movement algorithm. The system will also be able to analyze real road conditions, for example, determine the presence of ice.
The company already has partnerships with several OEMs and tier 1 suppliers in the automotive, aviation and security markets..
We also previously reported that Bosch will make the car dashboard 3D..
