VSS feasibility study

The VISSEE Visual Speed Sensor measures the absolute speed of objects or people it is mounted on. The potential applications are numerous, such as braking optimization for motor vehicles, and virtual trainers for physiotherapy or physical exercise. This feasibility study had a technological and an economical goal: (1) showing the sensors accurate measuring of linear speed, and (2) estimating the production costs. This will allow to show potential customers a professional demonstrator, and move to an application-specific, industrial prototyping phase.
