MIT Researchers Use Shadows with AV Technology

Oct. 30, 2019—MIT researchers have created a system that uses slight changes in shadows to predict whether or not a vehicle can expect a moving object to come around a corner, according to TechCrunch.

The  system employs standard optical cameras, and monitors changes in the strength and intensity of light using a series of computer vision techniques to arrive at a final determination of whether shadows are being projected by moving or stationary objects, and what the path of said object might be.

Right now, the system has only been tested in indoor lighting.
