This paper proposes a technique for unwanted lane departure detection. Initially, lane boundaries are detected using a combination of the edge distribution function and a modified Hough transform. In the tracking stage, a linear-parabolic lane model is used: in the near vision field, a linear model is used to obtain robust information about lane(More)
In this paper we address the problem of lane detection and lane tracking. A linear model is used to approximate lane boundaries in the first frame of a video sequence, using a combination of the edge distribution function and the Hough transform. A new linear-parabolic model is used in the subsequent frames: the linear part of the model is used to fit the(More)
This paper presents a model predictive controller (MPC) structure for solving the path-tracking problem of terrestrial autonomous vehicles. To achieve the desired performance during high-speed driving, the controller architecture considers both the kinematic and the dynamic control in a cascade structure. Our study contains a comparative study between two(More)
In this paper, we propose a new model for lane tracking and curve detection. We use a linear-parabolic model for each lane boundary, and apply constraints to link both lane boundaries based on the expected geometry of the road. The parabolic part of the model, which fits the far field, is then used to analyze the geometry of the road ahead (straight, right(More)
In autonomous vehicles control, there is a need to interconnect several electronic component units (ECUs) in a proper manner to allow the embedded computational system to perform its control task in an efficient and reliable way. Therefore, this paper presents an objectbased communication architecture that provides an infrastructure to design such systems.(More)
Autonomous guided agricultural self-propelled machines are becoming more common in modern agriculture as well as the increased use of electronic solutions. In order to guarantee the effectiveness of Functional Safety functions software validation is also becoming more complex and critical during the product development. Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) systems(More)
BACKGROUND Several posture evaluation devices have been used to detect deviations of the vertebral column. However it has been observed that the instruments present measurement errors related to the equipment, environment or measurement protocol. This study aimed to build, validate, analyze the reliability and describe a measurement protocol for the use of(More)
