Abstract

The 2WIDE_SENSE (WIDE spectral band & WIDE dynamics multifunctional imaging SENSor Enabling safer car transportation) EU funded project is aimed at the development of a low-cost camera sensor for automotive applications able to acquire the full visible to Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) spectrum, from 400 to 1700 nm.

This paper presents the results obtained using this extended spectral responsivity sensor for a Road Status Monitoring application to inspect the vehicle’s frontal area and detect layers of ice or water on the road surface.
