Autoliv Introduces New Safety Cameras


STOCKHOLM--May 14, 2013: Regulatory News:

“Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”

Autoliv Inc. -- the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems -- has developed a Stereo Vision Sensing (SVS) system that will make driving safer and more comfortable.

The new Autoliv system will help vehicle manufacturers meet the new test criteria that EuroNCAP recently announced to promote Autonomous Emergency Braking, Intelligent Speed Assist, Lane Departure Assists and Pedestrian Protection. Autoliv's new active safety system can also be used for four additional applications.

Autoliv start deliveries of the system in 2015 to European premium vehicle model.

Currently, an increasing number of vehicles have Mono Vision Systems (MVS). These systems have one camera which is used for such functions as Speed Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warnings, and even Autonomous Emergency Braking.

By adding another camera in tandem with the first camera, the system can provide a three dimensional view of the area in front of a vehicle. As a result, the Autoliv Stereo Vision System can ­-- in just one single measurement cycle -- calculate the distance to different objects in front of the vehicle and determine the shape and the size of them. Autoliv's Stereo Vision System will calculate the direction and speed of objects moving closer to the vehicle. As a result, Autoliv's Stereo Vision System is able to predict if, for instance, a pedestrian is at risk of being hit by the vehicle and warn the driver or brake the car.

The Autoliv's Stereo Vision System has a field of view of 50 degrees and can recognize objects within 120 meters. To provide the best view, the stereo vision cameras are mounted high on the front windshield behind the rear view mirror.

Autoliv's new system will be used for Autonomously Emergency Braking, Intelligent Speed Assist, Road/Lane departure warning and Pedestrian Protection, which is proposed to be included in EurNCAP's star rating of new vehicles from 2017. Additionally, the new vision system can do Adaptive Cruise Control, Queue Assist, Light Source Recognition (to automatically control the headlights to avoid blinding oncoming traffic) and Road Surface Monitoring (to automatically adjust the suspension ahead of hitting pot-holes or other bumps).
