Presentation “Intelligent Assistance Systems for Terrain and Object Detection”

Listen to our presentation on “Intelligent Assistance Systems for Terrain and Object Detection” at Mobile Machine 2019 on May 14 – 15, 2019 in Leinfelden-Echterdingen.

Where heavy equipment is used and many tons of construction material are being moved, job safety plays a central role. Like in road traffic, many driving accidents in the field of mobile machinery can be traced back to human error. A prime cause of accidents is that of visual impairment. Camera-based assistance systems for collision and accident avoidance are already firmly established in road vehicles, but cannot simply be integrated unchanged into mobile machines. This is because, in contrast to road traffic, mobile machines such as earth-moving machines operate on uneven terrain without a controlled traffic flow.

Using a prototype technology demonstrator, the presentation demonstrates how this challenge can be mastered by developing camera-based technologies and algorithms for robust approximation of the terrain ahead. In combination with a modular approach at the software and hardware level and with standard-compliant system development, persons and obstacles on impassable terrain can be detected.

We are looking forward to your visit!
