3D Visual Surveillance
The innovative overlay of 2D and 3D cameras create a 'virtual space'. These 3 dimensional representations display different danger zones which can be viewed on a monitor in the driver's cabin. The system recognises individuals and objects by the unique volume calculation of the 3D camera system and is able to alarm the driver by sight and sound. The system is based on three different topics.
For the first time in the waste management business, the ViSy GmbH integrates modern 3D cameras based on PMD (Photonic Mixer Device) technology in waste management trucks. This new and innovative sensor technology has opened up security dimensions for the work space around the vehicle.
Using a grid of over 2000 pixels, each pixel representing an independent sensor, the camera creates a 'virtual space' in which every fixed or movable object, including their distance information, is displayed.
