The team, consisting of Dr. Uwe Franke, Dr. Stefan Gehrig und Dr. Clemens Rabe, were the winners of the Beckurts Prize. We express our warmest congratulations to the prizewinners! The 6D-Vision, developed by researchers from Daimler, enables the distance and the movement of objects to be measured. The new stereo camera makes it possible to detect cars or pedestrians in the immediate vicinity. If there is a danger of collision, the braking force increases right up to the point in which emergency braking is performed, depending on the situation.
In mid-November 2012, Daimler announced that the 6D-Vision will be used in the next generation of the S-Class from 2013.
