Choosing The Best Vision System for Highly Automated Vehicles: Centralized or Edge Processing, Which is The Best Choice?

One of the most important attributes of a highly-automated vehicle (HAV) is its ability to see. Multiple computer vision sensors, distributed along the periphery of the vehicle, are what make HAVs ‘aware’ of their surroundings. This awareness is what enables decision making, whether it’s changing the course of the vehicle, or notifying the human driver […]
