Fujitsu achieves 1,000-1 image compression for driverless cars

New algorithm to allow real-time analysis of vehicle's surroundings

Fujitsu's technology could greatly improve the accuracy of self-driving technology.

TOKYO -- Fujitsu has developed an image-compression technology that allows it to reduce images to 0.1% of their original size, which will help increase the precision of self-driving systems.

The new algorithm, which draws on Fujitsu's know-how in 4K and 8K video broadcasts, compresses data at a ratio of 1,000-to-1 compared to the more typical 80-to-1. By significantly reducing the volume of data, moving cars will be able to send high-resolution images over the internet to data centers in real time.
