Conference Welcome

AVM-001
LED flicker measurement: Challenges, considerations and updates from IEEE P2020 working group, Brian Deegan, Valeo Vision Systems (Ireland)

Brian Deegan is a senior expert at Valeo Vision Systems. The LED flicker work Deegan is involved with came about as part of the IEEE P2020 working group on Automotive Image Quality standards. One of the challenges facing the industry is the lack of agreed standards for assessing camera image quality performance. Deegan leads the working group specifically covering LED flicker. He holds a BS in computer engineering from the University of Limerick (2004), and an MSc in biomedical engineering from the University of Limerick (2005). Biomedical engineering has already made it’s way into the automotive sector. A good example would be driver monitoring. By analyzing a drivers patterns, facial expressions, eye movements etc, automotive systems can already tell if a driver has become drowsy and provide an alert.
