Kyocera Develops World's First* Automotive Night Vision System with White and Near-Infrared Light Diodes Integrated into a Single GaN Laser Device

Kyocera Corporation (President: Hideo Tanimoto) announced today that it has developed an Automotive Night Vision System that can accurately identify collision-risk objects in low-visibility driving conditions, such as at night, or in rain, snow, fog, or smoke. The system is expected to reduce traffic accidents and promote safer driving.Kyocera's Automotive Night Vision features the first headlight in the world that can emit both white (RGB) and near-infrared (NIR) light on the same optical axis; this allows higher accuracy object recognition than alternative technologies. The system integrates RGB-NIR sensors and a unique "Image-Fusion AI Recognition Technology" developed by Kyocera for high performance object recognition. In addition, Kyocera has developed another generative AI feature to create training data for more cost-efficient learning and product development.
