In recent years many methods providing the ability to recognize rigid obstacles sedans and trucks have been developed. These methods provide the driver with relevant information. They are able to cope reliably with scenarios on motorways. Nevertheless, not much attention has been given to image processing approaches to increase the safety of pedestrians in(More)
Systems for automated image analysis are useful for a variety of tasks and their importance is still growing due to technological advances and an increase of social acceptance. Especially in the field of driver assistance systems the progress in science has reached a level of high performance. Fully or partly autonomously guided vehicles, particularly for(More)
In this report we present the rst results of a very eecient scheme for vehicle detection in traac scenes. It is based on the detection of the shadows underneath the vehicles. The use of shadow as sign pattern was rst reported in 5]. Herein a histogram evaluation of the paved road sustains the speciication of a threshold value for the shaded areas. This(More)

To reduce the number of traffic accidents and to increase the drivers comfort, the thought of designing driver assistance systems rose in the past years. Principal problems are caused by having a moving observer (ego motion) in predominantly natural surroundings. In this paper we present a solution for a flexible architecture for a driver assistance system.(More)
