New Panasonic technology for safer intersections

Panasonic has developed new millimetre-wave technologies that can separately detect cars, pedestrians and bicycles and can pave the way for the development of safety systems to avoid accidents occurring at intersections. The high precision, wide field of view millimetre-wave technologies are capable of separately detecting cars, pedestrians and bicycles in less than 0.1 second, provided they are separated by 20cm. These technologies also support the operation of multiple millimetre radars and enable a wider field-of-view (FOV) system, which together offer greater flexibility for installation at intersections. By applying unique coding technologies to millimetre-wave radar, it is able to detect vehicles, bicycles, and slow-moving pedestrians 2.5 times more accurately, compared to previous models of the millimetre-wave radar. It can detect pedestrians and vehicles in night time as well as bad weather conditions. For the project, Panasonic has developed and incorporated multi-dimensional electrical scanning technology which can rapidly sense locations of objects and maintains a high degree of sensitivity for detection of pedestrians by suppressing noise due to reflections from metallic vehicles.
