Use Case of computer vision ADAS system (RoadNex free space detection) : automatic predictive braking

Use Case of computer vision ADAS system (RoadNex free space detection) : automatic predictive braking NEXYAD made some tries of using their module RoadNex for predictive braking. RoadNex is a computer vision based module for road detection : . detection of drivable area borders and detection of free space (drivable area surface) :   The idea is that RoadNex is NOT and obstacle detector, but ifever the drivable area is going thinner or smaller, thenthere is a chance that an obstacle should be detected. It means that RoadNex... [Lire la suite]
