Roadrunner: Scanning the Road Ahead
Roadrunner by Corephotonics is a next-generation sensing solution that combines a stationary wide FoV camera with a narrow FoV scanning camera to deliver both wide FoV and long detection range of up to 300 meters. Roadrunner’s innovation significantly extends the detection and classification distance of visual data, offers highest angular resolution at a wider FoV, lowers cost, features a small physical footprint, and importantly, provides a passenger sense of safety.
Built on Corephotonics’ extensive experience with multi-aperture camera systems and complementary algorithms, Roadrunner’s dual camera capabilities effectively utilize deep learning algorithms to determine the ROI of the scanning camera at any given moment. These advances address a common pain-point in the industry; with Roadrunner, autonomous vehicles can classify pedestrians, vehicles, traffic lights and signs – even on a curvy road – and better detect small debris as far as 200m away.
