Seoul:LG Electronics has announced that its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) front camera, developed jointly with Daimler AG, will be used in Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles.
An ADAS front camera, usually hidden between the windshield and rearview mirror, is considered the “eye” of an intelligent vehicle as it gathers various types of traffic information.
LG said its camera, which is based on algorithms developed by its Vehicle Component Solutions division, can offer a variety of functions, including automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane departure warning, lane departure warning (LKA) and traffic sign recognition.
AEB and LDW in particular are mandatory features for all vehicles coming out next year in the US, Germany and other countries.
According to LG, the camera uses its solutions in the fields of telecommunications, telematics and image recognition as well as artificial intelligence and deep learning technologies to recognize and react to the environment in real time, thereby improving the safety of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Models on the street, reports the Yonhap news agency.
In May, its ADAS front camera received ISO 26262 certification, an international automotive standard that guarantees the functional safety of every product and process, from TÜV Rheinland, one of the world’s leading global testing organizations.
With the mass production of ADAS cameras, LG will further strengthen and diversify its vehicle components business.
LG is currently trying to expand its presence in the future mobility sector with three main pillars – infotainment, powertrains and automatic lighting systems.
