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]

Using the NEXYAD road detection (RoadNex) to make obstacles detection more robust

The detection of obstacles on the road, or even recognition of those obstacles, has become an important issue for the next few years, in order to propose to the driver: . Smart Systems for driving assistance : ADAS . Delegation (partial at first, later full) of the driving task, to go step by step to the so-called autonomous vehicle NEXYAD developed a vision-based obstacle detection system (ObstaNex) that aims to offer an alternative to the current reference product on the market (MobilEye). We detail the general principles... [Lire la suite]

DRIVING DELEGATION: KEY ELEMENTS

Driving Delegation: key elements for an artificial perception systemPublication of September 2, 2015Authors : Gérard YAHIAOUI & Pierre DA SILVA DIAS INTRODUCTIONThe automotive industry starts offering ADAS, and plans to propose in the near future partial or total driving  delegation systems. Main cases to be processed first may be:. Highway driving, where the number of events per kilometer is small because the infrastructure has been designed to minimize path irregularities (little or no turns, every car in the same...
