Low-cost Infrared Night Vision System reducing the number of accidents on the road: Watch the video

The IMAGIC-associated EU project ”ICU” is presented in a video recording on road safety.

The ICU project is a collaborative strategic research project in which six of Europe's leading companies and research establishments have joined forces. ICU aims at prototyping a low-cost infrared night vision system that can resolve a pedestrian or animal on the road. The infrared imaging system will be developed to provide high contrast images of warm (living) objects completely independent of ambient light conditions and is expected to considerably increase safety on the roads. The ICU project is supported by the European Community in the framework of the FP7 Information and Communication Technologies Programme.
