A Novel Lane Departure Warning System Based on Surrounding View


Article Preview

Lane departure warning system based on surrounding view is a human-made decision such as solution to avoid lane departure fatalities with low cost and high reliability. In this paper, the key parameters of time to lane crossing (TLC) and distance to lane crossing (DLC) are all calculated from image processing(the corner detect and the optic flow). In the warning module, two strategies are proposed to improve the reliability of the system. After adjusting the threshold values on abundance frames of consecutive images, the refined threshold of the two strategies are determined. Finally, the proposed strategies are incorporated into our lane departure warning system to be tested in off-line simulation. The results indicate the efficiency and feasibility of our system.
