Development of Active Contour Extraction for Autonomous Vehicle Lane Detection at Outdoor Environment 2001-01-0807

The project of the ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) has been actively promoted researches and developments for the safe and efficient traffic. In the project, development of the lane detection algorithm is indispensable. Under outdoor environment, it is very difficult to detect a lane and to distinguish the various obstacles by vision systems, due to optical problems. Here we propose the Active Contour Model Method, which is known as the most robust method to detect the lane contour. The vehicle based on an electric wheelchair for handicapped persons was used to examine the validity of the method.
