Monitoring Road Conditions with a Visible Camera


IVS has researched how to use our new patent-protected optical icing detection technology to help monitor road conditions through the use of a visible camera mounted on the vehicle. This system can provide the driver with “augmented vision” for detecting potentially hazardous conditions ahead.

Normally it’s difficult to distinguish ice, snow, and water from each other in the visible spectrum with a single forward-looking camera. But data from infrared detectors can be fused with that of the visible camera to mitigate the problem.
