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 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications able to acquire the full visible to Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) spectrum from 400 to 1700 nm. This paper presents the first results obtained by investigating the SWIR contribution to pedestrian detection in difficult visibility conditions as haze and fog employing the wide-bandwidth camera developed within the project.
