Examination of Pedestrian Detection Systems: Benchmarking Thermal Camera Performance

In July of 2020, FLIR Systems, Inc. engaged VSI to test the world’s first fused automatic emergency braking (AEB) sensor suite, employing a thermal longwave infrared (LWIR) camera, a radar, a visible camera, and a convolutional neural network (CNN).

VSI tested the fused AEB system along with the AEB systems deployed in four 2019 vehicles. All tests were conducted at the American Center for Mobility (ACM) in Michigan and were based on Euro New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) positive detection tests. The VSI-designed tests included driving toward a soft pedestrian target (SPT) heated to mimic a human at 25 MPH in a variety of common driving conditions, which are not currently tested as part of NCAP. This report discusses the results of these tests.
