Subaru released a new vehicle in the Japanese market recently called the LevorgÂ (I saw it on Samurai Wheels on NHK World). It stands for LEgacy reVOlution touRinG.
It also spells “grovel” backwards.
From the review Samurai Wheels gave it, it certainly doesn’t grovel.
But it also purports to do somethingÂ relatively difficult. Subaru has introduced EyeSightÂ in this vehicle which uses cameras to offer assistive driving (automatic braking, automatic following, etc).
The interesting thing about this (and theyÂ are cameras), is that video processing is difficult. It is far easier to use something like FLIR, LIDAR, or ultrasonic sonar or another technique than it is to use object tracking in a video stream.
Which makes me wonder if Subaru is doingÂ pure video object tracking, or if it’s combined with something else to make it work as well as it seemed to in the review I watched recently.
Comments on “subaru isn’t groveling”
Do you mean LIDAR instead of FLIR? FLIR works like regular video, just in the infra red spectrum as opposed to the visible spectrum.
I should have mentioned LIDAR, too (thanks for the catch – I added it) – but I did mean Forward Looking Infra Red 🙂
