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]

NEXYAD : new release of RoadNex (camera-based road and free space detection)

NEXYAD : new release of RoadNex (camera-based road and free space detection) New release available of the NEXYAD software module RoadNex :    . detection of the border of the road, even if there are no markings, even if the border is composed of  objects (cars, pedestrians, motorbikes, construction area, ...) . detection of the free space in front of the car RoadNex is available on the following environments : . Windows, embedded in the asynchronous real time framework RT-MAPS, . Raspberry Linux . Android ... [Lire la suite]
