Autoaid, a startup based in Berlin will be showcasing its Automotive Bulb Camera at CES 2018. The Bulb Camera is a unit that integrates an LED headlamp and an HD camera. It can be used in virtually any model. According to Autoaid, the camera will be useful for the collection of a vast amount of data that can be of significant benefit when it comes to the development of autonomous vehicles. The new headlight also offers the latest technology.
The autoaid Automotive Bulb Camera is a high-end unit comprising a high-resolution camera which is integrated into a halogen or LED automotive lamp. It can slot easily into conventional car headlight lampholders. There will be no need for retrofitting. Only the bulb is changes while the appearance of the vehicle remains the same. According to Autoaid, the cameras have the capability to record all traffic events and send them, along with data related to driving behavior like steering, braking, and accelerating, as well as the geodata, to the autoaid’s servers.
This information can then be analyzed with the aid of object recognition software to identify traffic participants, traffic lights, signs, and a lot more. The automotive industry would benefit from a detailed, almost inexhaustible volume of data for the driving behavior of millions of car drivers.
Moritz Funk, founder and CEO, said: “The Automotive Bulb Camera can be retrofitted into virtually all vehicles more easily and seamlessly than any other prior camera. Without visible changes to the car, new assistance systems are enabled for the end customers, while the industry is provided with the urgently needed data pool for the further development of autonomous driving.”
