Electronic systems are taking on an increasingly central role in driving, including advanced driver assistance systems and support for autonomous vehicles, and particularly in promoting road safety. The latest iteration of the influential European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), the EU-backed safety standard, adds criteria for evaluating anti-collision features that improve protection for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The Visconti4 image recognition processor is equipped with eight media processing engines, allowing it to execute eight applications simultaneously. It can detect and analyze camera-generated images and recognizes traffic lanes; nearby vehicles, both parked and moving; traffic signs and signals; the headlights of oncoming vehicles; plus the most vulnerable road users of all, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Visconti™4 has double the number of processing engines of its predecessor, the Visconti2, used by DENSO since 2015. It also integrates a new image recognition algorithm, Enhanced CoHOG Accelerator1 that delivers enhanced processing of luminance differences between objects and their backgrounds to better detect pedestrians at night and low light conditions.

Toshiba and DENSO are also cooperating in AI, on the development of deep neural network-intellectual property (DNN-IP) for use in image recognition, and plan to bring this state-of-the-art technology to future additions to the Visconti series.

The global market of vehicle-mounted cameras is expected to approach $9.6 billion in 20212. Toshiba is committed respond to with automotive semiconductor solutions that further pursue traffic safety.

Octapharma: Low inhibitor rate with octanate® in previously untreated patients (PUPs) with severe haemophilia A22.1.2018 08:00Pressemelding

Octapharma is delighted to announce the publication of final data from a Good Clinical Practice (GCP) trial in PUPs in the internationally renowned medical journal Haemophilia. The study assessed the immunogenicity, efficacy, safety and tolerability of octanate® in PUPs with severe haemophilia A. PUPs with haemophilia A are at greatest risk of inhibitor development. Approximately 35% develop inhibitors, which are associated with detrimental health and economic consequences. In this prospective, multinational study, 51 PUPs with severe haemophilia A received octanate® exclusively as replacement therapy, either prophylactically or for on-demand treatment of bleeds, for a total of 100 exposure days (EDs) or 5 years. Five (9.8%) of the 51 patients developed inhibitors, 4 (7.8%) of which were high titre (≥5 BU/mL) and 1 low titre (<5 BU/mL). All inhibitors developed during on-demand treatment and all 4 high-titre inhibitors developed within the first 20 EDs. All patients who developed inhib
