Machine vision is only as good as its sensors.
Vehicles depend more and more on sensors that are smart, responsive and dependable. Sensors need to inform drivers, read road signs, and talk to each other. They need to stay aware of dangers, obstacles and rapidly changing conditions.
Sensors need to be strategically placed, secure and above all, functional. But 3M Science adds another layer of thinking: Design. You want a sensor that does its job without calling attention to itself. Out of sight, out of mind.
3M Science offers next generation materials, cross industry expertise and real world experience to bring proven solutions to your engineering and design challenges.
There’s a lot to consider in the constantly evolving world of automotive sensors. Click on an area below to learn how 3M Science can help you improve machine vision.
Achieving performance and aesthetics can be a challenge. 3M camouflage films and bonding and sealing materials provide a level of flexibility to help ensure the sensor works with your design and never detracts from it.
Sensors both inside and outside a vehicle need to be strategically placed and unobtrusive. Where they’re located and how they’re mounted are critical to achieving optimal performance.
Sensors will encounter elements that interfere with clarity. 3M films defend sensors against weather, oils and other visual impediments.
A higher signal-to-noise ratio is essential for accurate object detection and classification. In short, inputs from data sources can’t be distorted. Messages must be quickly and accurately analyzed, prioritized and processed.
Seeing is everything when it comes to sensors. 3M science provides the means to keep a sensor’s viewpoint clean and free of debris. Allowing the transmission of signals to remain uncompromised.
