ADAS systems today mostly rely on computer vision techniques to detect targets. But, blind corners and obstructed view situations are a real problem. Working with our partners, Renesas has used a mic array on the exterior of the vehicle to HEAR the presence of emergency vehicles, cars, motorbikes, bicycles, and even pedestrians - then LOCALIZE them to inform the driver where to look to see them coming.
