Knowledge Bases for Visual Dynamic Scene Understanding
TLDR
The paper advocates knowledge elements integrating action processes of subjects as general elements for perception and control of temporal changes, dubbed ‘maneuvers’ here.

TLDR
Stereotypic classes of maneuvers for finite state transitions in appropriate time and corresponding knowledge elements for application under nominal and perturbed conditions are discussed as elements for mission performance.
Perception and computer vision
This chapter focuses on visual perception, which is the dominant sense in humans and has been used from the first days of building artificial machines. It highlights the state of the art in computer

TLDR
The article concentrates on the new corner detection scheme looking directly for curvature components of the intensity function in several pairs of orthogonal directions, which is especially suited for recognizing blinking spot lights and brake (stop) lights.
Monocular visual scene understanding from mobile platforms
TLDR
A probabilistic 3D scene model that encompasses multi-class object detection, object tracking, scene labeling, and 3D geometric relations is proposed that is able to represent complex interactions like inter-object occlusion, physical exclusion between objects, and geometric context.
Application Challenges from a Bird's‐Eye View
Computer Vision in Vehicle Technology focuses on computer vision as on-board technology, bringing together fields of research where computer vision is progressively penetrating: the automotive
Derivation of Motion Characteristics Using Affine Shape Adaptation for Moving Blobs
TLDR
This chapter applies anisotropic Gaussian scale space theory for modeling affine shape modifications of moving blobs in the context of vision-based driver assistance systems and the numerical evaluations indicate the validity of the idea and advantages to vehicle vision.
Vision for Robotics

6D-Vision: Fusion of Stereo and Motion for Robust Environment Perception
TLDR
A rich 6D representation is presented that allows the detection of moving obstacles even in the presence of partial occlusion of foreground or background and a powerful fusion of depth and motion information for image sequences taken from a moving observer is presented.
Interaction of perception and gaze control in autonomous vehicles
TLDR

A novel approach for the detection of vehicles on freeways by real-time vision
TLDR
A detector for other vehicles following the ego vehicle has been developed that generates a distance-invariant object representation to overcome the difficulties caused by variations in the visual appearance of objects when they are seen from different distances.
