The employment of embedded passive sensors in order to perceive environment for reducing the accident risk level is a tendency of intelligent vehicles research. From such sensors, one can extract useful informations which can assist the driver to identify hazardous situations. While safety improvement is a substantial requirement for driving assistance,(More)
This paper proposes an obstacle detection system for the purpose of preventing accidents at level crossings. In order to avoid the limits of already proposed technologies, this system uses stereo cameras to detect and localize multiple targets at the level crossing. In a first step, a background subtraction module is performed using the Color Independent(More)
Improving transport users' safety is one of the main priorities of research into transport system attractiveness. Level crossings are one of the most critical weak point involving road and rail users' infrastructure. They have become increasingly dangerous and unsafe due to road and railway users' behavior. Furthermore, rail and highway safety professionals(More)
— Technological solutions for obstacle detection systems have been proposed to prevent accidents in safety transport applications. In order to avoid the limits of these proposed technologies, an obstacle detection system utilizing stereo cameras is proposed to detect and localize multiple objects at level crossings. Background subtraction is first performed(More)
Automation world is living a change of design methodologies. Old top­down approaches are being replaced by component based design allowing design, realization and exploitation cost gains. Automation training in universities also evolves in order to train future automation industrialists up to date on new design paradigms and technologies. This paper(More)
