Automaker Hyundai Mobis plans to develop a deep learning-based camera to build safe self-driving systems by 2020.
The deep learning-based image detection technology is attracting the spotlight especially as the machine learns accumulated data and finds answers by itself. This technology has not been commercialized as of yet, and it is expected to take 4 to 5 years until its commercialization. Automaker Hyundai Mobis plans to develop a deep learning-based camera to build safe self-driving systems by 2020. The company aims to work with a Korean startup StradVision which possesses deep learning-based camera image detection technology.

Hyundai Mobis said it will invest 8 Billion Korean Won in startup StradVision, which has developed a software solution that uses deep learning to recognize pedestrians and even texts on road signs.
The company said that the StradVision’s image detection technology is excellent at accurately recognizing not only distant objects but also overlapped ones; it can distinguish one object from another—for instance, between vehicles and pedestrians or between pedestrians and bicycles—and utilizes that information as data for safe driving.
It can also read the movement patterns of vehicles and the posture of pedestrians and predict a situation in advance.
StradVision possesses 14 patents, including a method for rapidly reading texts embedded in images, fast parallel data processing and detection accuracy enhancement technology, with 10 of them having been registered in the U.S, according to the announcement.
