Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are embedded in cars to increase safety and reduce traffic congestion, and next generation about full autonomous vehicle intends to increase productivity of the driver and whole population of drivers. It is currently one of the most dynamic segments of the car industry, demonstrating an annual growth of around 25%. Photonics in both visible and infrared spectra has a big role to play in this field. This article will present the results of a current study about infrared-enabled ADAS functions. Strong cost’s decrease in infrared technologies, active 3D infrared imaging, night vision as well as computational capacities pave the way for increased use for infrared technologies in the car.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
