DENSO Develops New Safety Products for New 2018 Lexus LS
- New vision sensor and a millimeter-wave radar sensor more precisely detect obstacles on the road -

KARIYA, JAPAN, July 26, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - DENSO Corporation designs and develops the technology helping drivers safely navigate the roads. Today, the company announced two new products to be incorporated in the new 2018 Lexus LS, which will be released in Japan and U.S. after this fall. A new stereo vision sensor and millimeter-wave radar sensor will help improve safety performance of vehicles by more precisely detecting obstacles and lane lines on roads.

Stereo vision sensor

Millimeter-wave radar sensor

The stereo vision sensor uses 3D image processing techniques called "dense stereo matching" to detect obstacles of different shapes, including pedestrians, vehicles, and guardrails, as well as empty road spaces marked by lane lines. This enables autonomous emergency braking and automatic steering control to avoid obstacles. The product's highly sophisticated cameras can also better detect pedestrians at night.

The new millimeter-wave radar sensor provides higher pedestrian detection performance in a more compact module. More frequent radio waves emission also detects obstacles with higher sensitivity, particularly pedestrians approaching from the sides. Furthermore, the product's radar beam can be emitted over a wider angular range, without requiring a mechanism to adjust the angle, as with previous versions. This reduces its size by 60 percent compared to conventional radar sensors, thereby allowing for easier installation.

DENSO develops technologies and products that are core to helping create a society free from traffic accidents. Products like these will help deliver a safe and secure automotive society for all people around the world.
