Truck Safety Applications for Cost-efficient Laser Scanner Sensors

Cost-efficient sensor solutions are of high interest for automotive safety applications, in order to increase the use of sensor-based active safety functions to improve traffic safety. In the European collaboration project MiniFaros, a cost-efficient laser scanner is being developed. Particularly for heavy vehicles, cost-efficient sensors are of interest to observe objects in the close vicinity of the host vehicle. In this contribution, the target and benchmark applications for the cost-efficient laser scanner being developed in MiniFaros will be described, consisting of vulnerable road user protection functions and low-speed Adaptive Cruise Control.
