Alon Atsmon, Vice President of Technology Strategy at Harman International, presents the "Harman’s Augmented Navigation Platform—The Convergence of ADAS and Navigation" tutorial at the May 2015 Embedded Vision Summit.
Until recently, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and in-car navigation systems have evolved as separate standalone systems. Today, however, the combination of available embedded computing power and modern computer vision algorithms enables the merger of these functions into an immersive driver information system.
In his presentation Alon discusses Harman’s activities in ADAS and navigation. He explores how computer vision enables more intelligent systems with more natural user interfaces, and highlights some of the challenges associated with using computer vision to deliver a seamless, reliable experience for the driver. Alon also demonstrates Harman’s latest unified Augmented Navigation platform which overlays ADAS warnings and navigation instructions over a camera feed or over the driver’s actual road view.
