Many approaches have been proposed for in-vehicle obstacle detection using stereovision. Unfortunately, computation cost is generally a limiting factor for all these methods, especially for systems using large base-lines, as they need to explore a wide range of disparities. Considering this point, we propose a reliable three resolution framework, designed(More)
— In this paper, a novel approach to compute advisory speeds to be used in an adaptive Intelligent Speed Adaptation system (ISA) is proposed. This method is designed to be embedded in the vehicles. It estimates an appropriate speed by fusing in real-time the outputs of ego sensors which detect adverse conditions with roadway characteristics transmitted by(More)
— Compared to daytime, a larger proportion of accident happens during nighttime. The altered visibility of the road scene for the drivers may partially explain this situation. The latter becomes worse in fog presence. In this paper, two camera-based methods are proposed to detect the presence of night fog in images grabbed by in-vehicle multipurpose(More)
—Overspeeding is both a cause and an aggravation factor of traffic accidents. Consequently, much effort is devoted to limiting overspeeding and, consequently, to increasing the safety of road networks. In this paper, a novel approach to computing a safe speed profile to be used in an adaptive intelligent speed adaptation (ISA) system is proposed. The method(More)
In this paper, we propose a new way to estimate fog extinction at night using a classification of fog depending on the forward scattering. We show that a characterization of fog based on the atmospheric extinction parameter only is not sufficient. This method works in dense fogs (meteorological visibility distances < 400m) with a single image and three(More)
In this article, we show how to find the Tangent Point (TP) and compute the Tangent Point Angle in real-time imaging with a monocular in-vehicle camera. To achieve this goal, we first need a ground truth to which compare our algorithms used to find the TP in real-time road imaging. We propose a method to compute this ground truth based on localization(More)
—Compared with daytime, a larger proportion of road accidents happens during nighttime. The altered visibility for drivers partially explains this situation. It becomes worse when dense fog is present. In this paper, we first define a standard night visibility index, which allows specifying the type of fog that an advanced driver assistance system should(More)
