Development of Advance Driving Assist Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicles (AV) is predicted to be one of the major trends of the automotive industry for the next decade.
Besides the cost of sensors, whether they are Camera or LIDAR, the challenge is to detect the 3D environment with accurate, high resolution at long distances, while guaranteeing sensor integrity and reliability for the entire life of the vehicle.
Whether the sensor is operating in the visible or near infra-red wavelength range, the adjustable anti-reflective VIEWRISE® reduces reflected light waves and ghost images while it also increases sensor detection distance.
Other surface characteristics such as anti-scratch, oleophobia and hydrophobic can be provided through HARDRISE® solutions to protect the exposed sensor surface. Both HARDRISE® and VIEWRISE®® coatings are designed to withstand the wide temperature variations that vehicles endure.
