This paper presents the vision of the Artificial Vision and Intelligent Systems Laboratory (VisLab) on future automated vehicles, ranging from sensor selection up to their extensive testing. VisLab's design choices are explained using the BRAiVE autonomous vehicle prototype as an example. BRAiVE, which is specifically designed to develop, test, and(More)
The presence of autonomous vehicles on public roads is becoming a reality. In the last 10 years, autonomous prototypes have been confined in controlled or isolated environments, but new traffic regulations for testing and direct automotive companies interests are moving autonomous vehicles tests on real roads. This paper presents a test on public urban(More)
This paper presents an autonomous driving test held in Parma on urban roads and freeways open to regular traffic. During this test, the vehicle not only performed simple maneuvers, but it had to cope with complex driving scenarios as well, including roundabouts, junctions, pedestrian crossings, freeway junctions, and traffic lights. The test demonstrated(More)
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)
This paper presents a new vehicle guidance paradigm based on high level commands together with a new system architecture that can handle different levels of automation. First, an overview of different automation levels spanning from manual driving to fully autonomous driving is given, then a detailed description of the digital driving paradigm is also(More)
This paper presents a method for solving the extrinsic calibration between camera and multi-layer laser scanner for outdoor multi-sensorized vehicles. The proposed method is designed for intelligent vehicles within the autonomous navigation task where usually distances between sensor and targets become relevant for safety reasons, therefore high accuracy(More)

This paper presents the design, the setup, and the architecture of a new class of autonomous vehicles prototype. The car is equipped with 26 cameras, divided into 13 stereo pairs. Four stereo systems are dedicated to the reconstruction of the near area surrounding the vehicle, other nine are dedicated to the 3D reconstruction of the far driving area.(More)
