Valeo LaneVue Lane Departure Warning System (http://rbi.ims.ca/4919-545). First introduced on the Infiniti FX, and now available on the 2006 Infiniti M35 & M45 models, the Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system uses a camera mounted behind the windshield and proprietary software algorithms to monitor the lane markings in front of the vehicle. The system identifies lane changes, when the turn signal is not used, as an unintentional lane departure and sounds an audible warning to alert the driver. Valeo engineers worked with Iteris to develop a video system that includes a CMOS camera with Integrated Signal Processing.

Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
