Nighttime pedestrian detection system is an essential component of the driver assistance systems in the automotive industry. The fundamental function of the system is to avoid collision of the vehicle with the pedestrians while driving especially at night.. The nighttime pedestrian detection system works by letting the driver of the vehicle know about the obstacles (especially the pedestrians) on the road with the help of a Near Infrared (NIR) camera and its displaying unit. These systems are also widely used in robotics, surveillance, and intelligent vehicles. For instance, the BMW series 7 model cars come with a nighttime pedestrian detection system along with an active lane departure warning system. The nighttime pedestrian detection system forms a part of the advanced driving assistance systems (ADASs) since they help the driver in checking the occurrences of accidents and provide safer driving circumstances. The nighttime pedestrian detection system consists of four modules; image capture, segmentation, tracking, and warning and display module.
Growing concerns and government regulations pertaining to vehicle safety and increasing demand for premium vehicles are some of the driving factors of themarket. Over the years there has been a growth in the number of vehicles and construction of roads and with that the incidence of road accidents has also increased. In recent years, the automobile industry has put forward their research and development work for further improving in the night vision systems. This has led to further improvements in the advanced driving assistance systems with a surge in demand for nighttime pedestrian detection systems.
The nighttime pedestrian detection systems are too expensive to be used. This is one of the potential restraining factors which can hamper the growth of the market.
Low penetration of leading providers of advanced driving assistance systems (ADASs) in developing markets and rise in the number of autonomous cars are some of the opportunities present in this market.
The market has been segmented based on type of sensing technologies, vehicle type, and geography. By type of sensing technologies the market has been further segmented into Far Infrared Imaging Systems and Near Infrared Imaging Systems. By vehicle type the market has been segmented into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. Far Infrared Imaging Systems operate in darker places when the need for light is necessary. In Far Infrared Imaging (FIR) Systems no additional illumination is required and the pedestrians appear darker than the surroundings. It functions on sensing the temperature of an object. These sensors work best during the summers. However, the Near Infrared Imaging Systems (NIR) provide a higher image resolution.The (NIR) are invariant to the temperature prevalent in the environment. They work efficiently both in summers and in winters. Additionally the cost of NIR systems is lower than the FIR systems. Three types of image information are extracted from these systems, spatial position, color and shape.
The geographical segmentation includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. North America is expected to hold the largest market share followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. Major automobile manufacturers in North America and Europe such as Ford Motors, General Motors, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles among others have been using nighttime pedestrian detection systems widely to prevent road accidents. In Asia Pacific, countries like China, India, Korea and others are increasingly adopting the use of advanced driving assistance systems.
