Title (EN) CAMERA BASED HEADLIGHT CONTROL SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE COMMANDE DE PHARE À BASE DE CAMÉRA
Abstract:
(EN) A lighting system for a vehicle is disclosed. The lighting system comprises an imager configured to capture image data in a plurality of image frames in a rearward field of view. The system further comprises at least one headlamp configured to output an emission of light at a plurality of elevations and a controller. The controller is in communication with the imager and the headlamp. The controller is operable to process the image data to identify features in a first frame and a second frame. The controller is further operable to identify a movement of the features from the first frame to the second frame and adjust the elevation of the output emission in response to the movement.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système d'éclairage pour un véhicule. Le système d'éclairage comprend un imageur configuré pour capturer des données d'image dans une pluralité de trames d'image dans un champ de vision arrière. Le système comprend en outre au moins un phare configuré pour émettre une émission de lumière à une pluralité d'élévations et un dispositif de commande. Le dispositif de commande est en communication avec l’imageur et avec le phare. Le dispositif de commande est opérationnel pour traiter les données d'image de façon à identifier des éléments dans un premier cadre et un deuxième cadre. Le dispositif de commande est en outre opérationnel pour identifier un mouvement des éléments du premier cadre vers le deuxième cadre et ajuster l'élévation de l'émission de sortie en réponse au mouvement.
