Startup company Myakiatto has developed a new analysis system, Sphirna, that uses stereo vision technology to measure the distance between cars and can be used on open roads as well as test track environments.
The system can be installed on the roof of any car using a standard roof rack (only one bar is needed) in approximately 30 minutes, with no instrumentation required on the target vehicle in front.
The system can track up to four vehicles in its field of view and offers an operating range of 15-55m. It operates in a frequency of 39Hz and offers an accuracy of ±1.5% of reading, with output via CAN.
Sphirna is particularly useful for open road validations because of its flexibility: it is not disturbed by buildings along the road, recognizes the target vehicles in the cameras’ field-of-view and measures only the distance to these detected target vehicles.
