Online Lecture Series »Radar in Action«  /  June 08, 2021, 14.00-14.30

The HORIS Project – How radar helps to protect pedestrians

Pedestrians, cyclists, public transport or cars – city traffic can get complex. A new radar based sensor system can warn drivers as soon as a person starts walking towards the street and make infrastructure safer. The system was developed in close cooperation of Fraunhofer IVI, IIS and FHR coordinated by the CCIT cluster. In the online seminar the technology behind the project is presented, validation results are shown and perspective are given for further research. A live demonstration will complete the presented results.
