Hitachi Automotive Systems stereo camera with nighttime pedestrian detection adopted by Suzuki for Spacia Mini Wagon
Hitachi Automotive Systems stereo camera, with nighttime pedestrian detection features, has been adopted by Suzuki Japan for their Spacia series. Spacia is a series of mini passenger vehicles launched in August 2020 with enhanced safety features. The Suzuki Spacia is also an MLIT AEBS Certified Vehicle. An MLIT vehicle certification for passenger vehicles that indicates the vehicle advanced emergency (automatic) brakes with respect to vehicles in motion or stopped vehicles have a certain level of performance.
The Suzuki Spacia’s improved safety devices include a new dual camera braking support, which detects pedestrians even at night, and adaptive cruise control. In addition, the Spacia series has enhanced advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), including improved recognition of road signs, such as stop signs. These features are supported by Hitachi Automotive Systems’ stereo camera with nighttime pedestrian detection. The stereo camera leverages Hitachi’s unique machine learning technology, making it possible to detect pedestrians with a high level of precision.
Hitachi Automotive Systems supports such safety support vehicles with advanced ADAS technologies, and will continue to contribute to the prevention of traffic accidents. Hitachi Automotive Systems is engaged in the development, manufacture, sales and services of automotive components, transportation related components, industrial machines and systems, and offers a wide range of automotive systems including Powertrain Systems, Chassis Systems and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
