This paper presents a stereo-vision based system for the recognition of dangerous situations at roundabouts. At first, we investigate the necessary field of view and viewing direction using videos taken by a panoramic camera. Using the insights of these tests we build up a stereo-vision system. This system is based on the well established disparity(More)

With an omnidirectional camera system, it is possible to take 360°views of the surrounding area at each camera position. These systems are used particularly in robotic applications, in autonomous navigation and supervision technology for ego­motion estimation. In addition to the visual capture of the environment itself, we can compute (More)
In summer 2013, a Mercedes S-Class drove completely autonomously for about 100 km from Mannheim to Pforzheim, Germany, using only close-to-production sensors. In this project, called Mercedes Benz Intelligent Drive, stereo vision was one of the main sensing components. For the representation of free space and obstacles we relied on the so called Stixel(More)
