MIT Computer Vision Technology Allows Cars to See Around Corners

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have devised a computer vision system that monitors subtle shadows to detect objects that are hidden from view. The CornerCameras system from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) observes light reflections to perceive unseen people or things. The computer vision system uses these reflections to estimate the…
