Build your autonomous vehicles

in LEGO-like approach 

Building autonomous vehicles is not that much different from building LEGOs — at PerceptIn, we have simplified autonomous vehicle designs and modularized the components, such that developers can simply integrate components to build their own autonomous vehicles. 

PerceptIn DragonFly Pod

PerceptIn DragonFly Pod, a safe and reliable self-driving pod, fulfill passenger's last-mile task by adapting latest computer vision technology. It is design to self-drive in low-speed scenarios, such as university campuses, industrial parks, and areas with limited traffic. 

- Low-speed autonomous driving vehicle
- Transport customers and goods in campus
- Vision-based sensor fusion
- Modular design
- Safe, reliable and affordable

- Low speed

- Restricted area

- Equipped with advanced sensors

 

Application Scenario

PerceptIn DragonFly Computer Vision Module

PerceptIn DragonFly Sensor Module is a product designed to enable outdoor low-speed autonomous vehicles and robots. The design consists of four hardware-synced high-definition global-shutter cameras (a stereo pair in the front, and a stereo pair in the back), an IMU device, and a Jetson TX1 computing module. This design provides three major functions: perception, localization, and panoramic video streaming.

PerceptIn DragonFly 77 GHz mm Wave Radar

Based on pulse-echo principle, PerceptIn DragonFly Millimetre-Wave Radar(77GHz) is used to monitor the surroundings of the vehicle, such as Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Lane Change Assistance (LCA), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Car Door Open Warning (DOW). In addition, it can be used on autonomous vehicles for active obstacle avoidance. For communication, Millimetre-Wave Radar consists of two CAN interfaces that are responsible for data exchange between radar and automobile, and two High-side Drivers that are used to drive external load directly.

PerceptIn DragonFly Sonar

PerceptIn DragonFly Sonar can recognize and monitor obstacles within 5 meters. It consists of a long-range ultrasonic sensor and an Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The Ultrasonic sensor can transmit short ultrasonic impulses reflected from surrounding objects. Advanced digital processing evaluates signal attributes of the reflected echoes and thus enable state-of-the-art object detection in terms of speed and robustness. DragonFly Sonar supports multichannel operation, providing high measuring update rates and avoiding mutual interference. In addition, DragonFly Sonar can be used on autonomous vehicles for passive obstacle avoidance. The number of sensors can be flexibly configured in lined with different functional requirements.
