— This paper presents the preliminary results of VIAC, the VisLab Intercontinental Autonomous Challenge, a test of autonomous driving along an unknown route from Italy to China. It took 3 months to run the entire test; all data have been logged, including all data generated by the sensors, vehicle data, and GPS info. This huge amount of information has been(More)
— Future requirements for drastic reduction of CO2 production and energy consumption will lead to significant changes in the way we see mobility in the years to come. However, the automotive industry has identified significant barriers to the adoption of electric vehicles, including reduced driving range and greatly increased refueling times. Automated cars(More)
—Vision-based perception has been explored as low-cost, flexible technology for industrial applications such as factory automation and ADAS in the automotive market. The inherent flexibility of these systems presents a challenge quantifying performance and often even quantifying increases or decreases in system performance as conditions change. Experience(More)
— Autonomous Ground Vehicles designed for extreme environments (e.g mining, constructions, defense, exploration applications) require a reliable estimation of terrain traversability, in terms of both terrain slope and obstacles presence. In this paper we present a new technique to build, in real time and only from a 3D points cloud, a dense terrain(More)
Road Sign Detection is a major goal of the Advanced Driving Assistance Systems. Most published work on this problem share the same approach by which signs are first detected and then classified in video sequences , even if different techniques are used. While detection is usually performed using classical computer vision techniques based on color and/or(More)
— This paper presents a monocular algorithm for front and rear vehicle detection, developed as part of the FP7 V-Charge project's perception system. The system is made of an AdaBoost classifier with Haar Features Decision Stump. It processes several virtual perspective images, obtained by un-warping 4 monocular fish-eye cameras mounted all-around an(More)
