Pedestrian and Vehicle Recognition Based on Radar for Autonomous Emergency Braking 2017-01-1405

Autonomous Emergency Braking Systems (AEBS) usually contain radar, (stereo) camera and/or LiDAR-based technology to identify potential collision partners ahead of the car, such that to warn the driver or automatically brake to avoid or mitigate a crash. The advantage of camera is less cost: however, is inevitable to face the defects of cameras in AEBS, that is, the image recognition cannot perform good accuracy in the poor or over-exposure light condition. Therefore, the compensation of other sensors is of importance. Motivated by the improvement of false detection, we propose a Pedestrian-and-Vehicle Recognition (PVR) algorithm based on radar to apply to AEBS. The PVR employs the radar cross section (RCS) and standard deviation of width of obstacle to determine whether a threshold value of RCS and standard deviation of width of the pedestrian and vehicle is crossed, and to identity that the objective is a pedestrian or vehicle, respectively. The performance of the proposed algorithm is pressed via the experimental test data.
