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 ...).
