In a previous paper, a simple approach to lane detection using the Hough transform and iterated matched filters was described [1]. This paper extends this work by incorporating an inverse perspective mapping to create a bird's-eye view of the road, applying random sample consensus to help eliminate outliers due to noise and artifacts in the road, and a(More)
42 Computer Websigns: Hyperlinking Physical Locations to the Web F irst-generation mobile computing technologies typically use protocols such as WAP and i-mode to let PDAs, smart phones, and other wireless devices with Web browsers access the Internet, thereby freeing users from the shackles of their desktops. We believe, in addition, users would benefit(More)
A new night-time lane detection system and its accompanying framework are presented in this paper. The accompanying framework consists of an automated ground truth process and systematic storage of captured videos that will be used for training and testing. The proposed Advanced Lane Detector 2.0 (ALD 2.0) is an improvement over the ALD 1.0 or Layered(More)
A layered approach is designed to address many of the real-world problems that an inexpensive lane detection system would encounter. A region of interest is first extracted from the image followed by an enhancement procedure to manipulate the shape of the lane markers. The extracted region is then converted to binary using an adaptive threshold. A model(More)
In this paper, we propose a new methodology for detecting lane markers that exploits the parallel nature of lane boundaries on the road. First, the input image is pre-processed and filtered to detect lane marker features. Then, using the Polar Randomized Hough Transform that is introduced in this paper, lines are fitted through the detected features and the(More)
A modified formulation of oriented boxing called oriented slab boxing is presented. It almost doubles the speed of the oriented boxing component in B-spline intersection. The method used to accelerate B-spline intersection includes algorithmic improvements and parallelization of the algorithm at different levels of granularity to find an optimum solution on(More)
In this document, a new and efficient method to specify the ground truth locations of lane markers is presented. The method comprises of a novel process called Time-Slicing that provided the user with a unique visualization of the video. Coupled with automation via spline interpolation, the quick generation of necessary ground truth information is achieved.(More)
Providing high resolution tangible user interface components without batteries such as dials and sliders that support dynamic user interface arrangement is challenging. Previous work uses RFID to support limited resolution custom-built components. We demonstrate improved techniques using commercial off the shelf input controls incorporated into passive RFID(More)
Desktop browsers are excellent for browsing web sites but they keep users tethered. Wireless browsing technologies such as WAP and i-mode untether nomadic users by making these services available on the move. However, it is not clear if users will be satisfied with free form browsing offered by these wireless technologies. We believe that in addition to(More)
