Title
(EN) Camera Fields of View for Object Detection
Abstract
(EN)

The present disclosure provides systems and methods for detecting, localizing, and classifying objects that are proximate to an autonomous vehicle. A sensor system can include one or more ranging systems and a plurality of cameras. The plurality of cameras can be positioned such that a field of view for each camera of the plurality of cameras overlaps a field of view of at least one adjacent camera. The one or more ranging systems can be configured to transmit ranging data to a perception system for detecting objects of interest and the plurality of cameras can be configured to transmit image data to the perception system for classifying the objects of interest.
