Denso exhibited their intelligent transportation system (ITS) products at the 15th World Congress held in New York from 17 to 20 November.
The company also showed wireless communication devices displayed for technology demonstrations of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) as well as vehicle-to–roadside (V2R) communications. Denso say the basic aim is to reduce a vehicle’s environmental impact ensuring increased traffic safety and convenience.
Denso showcased two future technologies in the area of safety which include gaze detection and adaptive front-lighting system (AFS) on a cockpit simulator. Gaze detection technology monitors the driver’s gaze and detects inattentiveness and immediately alerts the driver. The company’s AFS technology utilises information from navigation systems to predict curves on the road and redirects the vehicle’s headlamps to highlight changes on the road ahead. Another product on display by Denso is a new thin film transistor (TFT) instrument cluster. The cluster features an integrated night view system that aims to improve a driver’s night-time visibility and helps in detecting pedestrians or other potential obstacles on the road.
