Honda’s Autonomous Work Vehicle (AWV) Uses ZED Stereo Cameras

Using ZED stereoscopic RGB-D camera, the Honda’s autonomous Work Vehicle (AWV) can navigate complex obstacles with ease.

Building a vehicle that can drive itself on ordinary roads is—along with getting computers to conduct plausible conversations—one of the grand ambitions of modern AI.

The Honda AWV is an all-electric, four-wheel drive developed by Honda Research institute deployed predominantly on the construction sites so as to cut down travel time between multiple sites increasing the effectiveness and efficiency.

The ZED 2, 3D stereoscopic RGB-D camera is the forward-facing camera on board, along with other sensors for allowing the AWV to easily navigate around the obstacles on the road. The car is designed to drive through traffic and light snow, handling four-way stops, traffic lights, and pedestrian crossings with aplomb.

Cars changed the world in all sorts of unforeseen ways. By granting drivers unprecedented freedom, automobiles changed the world. Now autonomous vehicles are poised to rewrite the rules of transport.

If you want to harness the power of stereovision and AI on your autonomous vehicles to get accurate Depth sensing, Object detection, Positional tracking, and 3D Spatial mapping, try ZED stereo cameras.
