The Automated High Beam System is designed to detect oncoming cars and help drivers toggle their high beam headlights so that they don't blind others on the road. Our system will use a camcorder to record traffic. The live video will be processed through our car detection algorithm to determine when a car enters the hazardous zone within the range of the driver's high beams. Our system will determine the distance of other vehicles, the intensity of surrounding light sources, and the overall need of the high beam headlights. In addition, the user will always have the power to override the system's control. This product is designed to allow the driver to focus their attention on the road in situations where active use of high beam headlights is desired.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
