Koito Group, the leading Tier 1 supplier of exterior automotive lighting, will announce at the Consumer Electronics Show that the concept version of their Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) headlights, a technology where high beam is perpetually actuated until oncoming traffic is detected, will be supported by artificial intelligence supplied by Reality AI.
Koito collaborated with Reality AI, a New York and Maryland startup whose expertise is in using machine learning techniques with sensor signal inputs, after an extensive search of the market for automotive-related AI technology.
“Reality AI’s signal-processing based approach and their ability to deliver an embedded solution is a positive step in delivering a product that will support the Mobility ecosystem,” said Tom Masuda, Project Director of NAL Silicon Valley Lab, a new division of the Koito Group.
Reality AI is unique in that classifiers and detectors created with its technology can be deployed at the “edge” on cost-effective hardware. “We offer something that product developers often can’t find anywhere else,” said Stuart Feffer, chief executive officer and co-founder of Reality AI.
