Free Space detection in real time on standard architectures such as smartphones

Free Space detection in real time on standard architectures such as smartphones Here is the demo of RoadNex free space detection on a regular smartphone. Free space is detected in real time. On this version, "distant  sidewalks" are integrated into free space (it is an option) because sidewalks without pedestrians may be a option to avoid accident if it is not possible to brake as short as need and is the street is full of users. No need for a NVIDIA heavy computing architecture, no need for a MOBILEYE chip, etc ... Only the... [Lire la suite]

Low CPU consumption road detection and free space detection running in real time on a regular smartphone : RoadNex

Low CPU consumption road detection and free space detection running in real time on a regular smartphone : RoadNex The company NEXYAD showed to its partners and customers at CES 2018 in Las Vegas the RoadNex road detection system running on a regular smartphone (using CPU and camera of the smartphone). RoadNex detectes two things, independently : . borders of the lane : borders may be road markings, other cars, construction area signs, pedestrians, bicycle, ... . free space : part of the world ahead that is flat and drivable...

Free space detection with RoadNex : real time implementation on a regular smartphone

Free space detection with RoadNex : real time implementation on a regular smartphone  Panoramic movement (the most complex for any detection algorithm) with smartphone in hand (so calibration must be very robust as heigth and angle of camera is changing all the time). The goal of this free space detection is to detect as more drivable surface as possible (including sidewalks if not too high, including security area, etc ...). Indeed, the "lane" borders are detected by a borders detection algorithm (different from free space). ... [Lire la suite]

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]

Free space detection using the NEXYAD road detection module RoadNex (ADAS, driverless)

Free space detection using the NEXYAD road detection module RoadNex (ADAS, driverless) NEXYAD proposes a sofwtare module called RoadNex that detects : . borders of the lane (with or without road signs : white lines etc, RoadNex works even on a desert track) . free space (area in front of the car that can be considered as "drivable") Even without any obstacle detection, it is possible then to know that there is "something" on the road or not. Note : RoadNex won't make a difference between a drawing on the road and an obstacle, but... [Lire la suite]

Road detection RoadNex may help to avoid TESLA accidents

Road detection RoadNex may help to avoid TESLA accidents Most camera-based road detection systems are based on detection of white lines. Thoses detectors are very efficient if white lines exist (it is not the case on every road in Europe) and if they are "clean" and not tricky. For instance, if you have a construction zone, you keep the white line detection on the right side, you lose it on the left side (so you may thinkthat they are erased on the left side because it happens all the time). Plots (or temporary separation wall) used... [Lire la suite]
