Poised, Prepared, and Proactive Sensor Cleaning is a Must

Engineers who eat, sleep and breathe the objectives of automated driving, machine vision, LiDAR, driver monitoring, and active safety know that the sensor requirements keep evolving every six months. Application of these automotive technologies calls upon the need for proactive sensor cleaning.  In his article, Freddie Holmes (2019) points out that while the vehicle’s beltline is the ideal viewing point for vision sensors, it can also be the dirtiest.  As sensor availability is mission-critical, sensor cleaning takes on a prominent role.  Read more about the intrigue of sensor cleaning and the dlhBOWLES proactive approach here:  https://www.automotiveworld.com/articles/poised-and-prepared-proactive-sensor-cleaning-is-a-must/

Among many others, speakers will include: Rasheq Zarif of Deloitte, Jim Alder of Toyota AI Ventures, Ganesh Iyer of NIO, Brian Kushnir of Kantar, Sam Abuelsamid of Navigant Research, Daniel Davenport of Capgemini, Ravi N. Raj of Passage AI, Kevin Roberts of EY, Nokia’s Houman Modarres, TomTom’s Praveen Chandrasekar, Steve Wernikoff of Honigman, and Scott Mercer of Volta Industries.

The four technology-driven trends: connected, autonomous, shared, and electric (CASE) – indicate a revolution in motion that will change the way people and goods move. Expounding on mobility trends and future changes, the topics covered will include mastering maps and sensors, customer pain points, artificial intelligence, fifth-generation (5G) wireless data, safety, testing, strategic partnerships, the user experience, and government regulations, as well as the numerous challenges the industry faces in its quest to bring electric vehicles into the mainstream.

Future CASE mobility solutions are riding on the trust and acceptance of the consumer. Government representatives Jared Ho of United States Federal Trade Commission, Jean Schlitz of Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy, Jill North of the City of San Jose, and Carol Kuester of Metropolitan Transportation Commission will provide clear understanding of the regulatory role that must be undertaken in the key relationship between artificial intelligence, mobility providers, and their customers.

dlhBOWLES to Exhibit Sensor Cleaning Technology at CES 2019

dlhBOWLES will be displaying their Sensor Cleaning Systems technology as part of the LeddarTech “Leddar Ecosystem Pavilion” at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV from January 8 – 11, 2019.

“We are looking forward to collaborating again this year with LeddarTech to promote our trusted Camera and Sensor Cleaning technologies.  In 2018, we have connected with new technology partners to develop various systems that will hit the market in the next few years,” said John Saxon, President and CEO. “As adoption of ADAS and Autonomous mobility systems increases, our Camera and Sensor Cleaning technology will enable the optical sensors and cameras to safely perform in adverse weather conditions.  We look forward to connecting with more partners at CES 2019 and continue to improve the safety of vehicles on the road.”

Attendees of CES can view dlhBOWLES technology in action at the “Leddar Ecosystem Pavilion” in Central Plaza, as well as in Magneti Marelli’s exhibit located at the Wynn Hotel, Latour Ballroom 5-7. dlhBOWLES is proud to be a part of Magneti Marelli’s Smart Corner Modular Platform that was named a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree.

dlhBOWLES provides cleaning solutions for Automotive cameras and sensors that seamlessly integrate into the existing washer system in the vehicle improving the effectiveness and safety of today’s ADAS and tomorrow’s autonomous technology.  Foreign materials like dust, mud, road salt, snow and other related debris can cause lens or sensor obstruction that will lead to degraded system performance or even render the system inoperable.

Any vehicle utilizing optical sensors or cameras will need a clear, unobstructed view to function properly and ensure safe operation. The number of cameras and sensor systems present on new vehicles has increased significantly over the past few years and will be part of standard equipment in the coming years as more vehicles adopt the lifesaving ADAS technologies.
