Toyota Motors Europe
[Feb 2006 - Jan 2009]
The contract with Toyota Motors Europe is a joint collaboration involving Toyota Motors Europe, INRIA and ProBayes. It follows a first successful short term collaboration with Toyota in 2005.
This contract aims at developing innovative technologies in the context of automotive safety. The idea is to improve road safety in driving situations by equipping vehicles with the technology to model on the fly the dynamic environment, to sense and identify potentially dangerous traffic participants or road obstacles, and to evaluate the collision danger. The sensing is performed using sensors commonly used in automotive applications such as cameras and lidar.
