The White Paper on EU Transport Policy for 2010 states a key objective: 50% reduction of casualties due to road accidents by the end of 2010. Improvements on road safety are achievable increasing the EU market penetration of eSafety systems, currently limited by performance and cost of sensor technologies. According to ICT-2009.6.1, 2WIDE_SENSE addresses research challenges in the area of Intelligent Vehicle Systems for further improving road safety This includes advanced in-vehicle safety systems with improved performance and reduced costs.

The project aims at providing European automotive industry with the next generation of imaging sensors beyond the current CMOS imagers. The core sensing technology is a cost-effective InGaAs focal plane array with wide spectral response (VIS-NIR-SWIR) and wide dynamic range (120dB). The benefits deriving from the additional SWIR bandwidth allow enhancing preventive safety functions and car energy efficiency.

The specific objectives are:
- implementation of the paradigm of application independent multifunctional camera;
- hybridisation of InGaAs detector on silicon read out circuits;
- deposition of low cost interferential bandpass optical filters at pixel level;
- design of AR coatings and plastic lenses;
- development of multi-spectral wide dynamic range camera engine;
- algorithm development for predictive road status monitoring;
- sensor validation adapting existing ADAS software platforms (LDW, NV, HBA, TSR, VRU);
- synergies and complementary actions with on-going and new projects in FP7 on road safety.

The innovations claimed are:
- wide dynamic range and wide spectral response InGaAs focal plane array;
- collective process for hybridisation, including the substrate removal step, of InGaAs arrays on silicon read-out circuit;
- use of wide spectral band cameras in safety applications;
- cost-effective large spectrum plastic lenses;
- road status monitoring for preventive and active safety.
