One source of accidents when driving a vehicle is the presence of fog. Fog fades the colors and reduces the contrasts in the scene with respect to their distances from the driver. Various camera-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) can be improved if efficient algorithms are designed for visibility enhancement in road images. The visibility(More)
One source of accidents when driving a vehicle is the presence of homogeneous and heterogeneous fog. Fog fades the colors and reduces the contrast of the observed objects with respect to their distances. Various camera-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) can be improved if efficient algorithms are designed for visibility enhancement of road(More)
The aim of this paper is to enhance the research works developed since 1998 by Gruyer and Royere. They established a tool for detections of vehicles and tracking based on the belief theory. Their approaches focus on the use of generalized Dempster's combination rules in the extended open world and they provide two partial views of the situation with two(More)
This paper studies the contribution of warning communications in a vehicles string. After having presented the capacity and safety notions, two approaches of the evaluation of the communication impact on the safety-capacity tradeoff are presented. The first approach proposes a formal expression of the number of collisions in a uniform vehicles string(More)
Localizing a vehicle consists in estimating its state by merging data from proprioceptive sensors (inertial measurement unit, gyrometer, odometer, etc.) and exteroceptive sensors (GPS sensor). A well known solution in state estimation is provided by the Kalman filter. But, due to the presence of nonlinearities, the Kalman estimator is applicable only(More)
We propose a new cooperative fusion approach between stereovision and laser scanner in order to take advantage of the best features and cope with the drawbacks of these two sensors to perform robust, accurate and real time-detection of multi-obstacles in the automotive context. The proposed system is able to estimate the position and the height, width and(More)
In order to navigate safely, it is important to detect and to react to a potentially dangerous situation. Such a situation can be underlined by a judicious use of the locations and the uncertainties of both the navigating vehicle and the obstacles. We propose to build an estimation of the collision probability from the environment perception with its(More)
This paper presents the design and first test on a simulator of a vehicle trajectory-planning algorithm that adapts to traffic on a lane-structured infrastructure such as highways. The proposed algorithm is designed to run on a fail-safe embedded environment with low computational power, such as an engine control unit, to be implementable in commercial(More)
