Texture-Based Vanishing Point Voting for Road Shape Estimation

  title={Texture-Based Vanishing Point Voting for Road Shape Estimation},
  author={Christopher Rasmussen},
Many rural roads lack sharp, smoothly curving edges and a homogeneous surface appearance, hampering traditional vision-based road-following methods. However, they often have strong texture cues parallel to the road direction in the form of ruts and tracks left by other vehicles. This paper describes an unsupervised algorithm for following ill-structured roads in which dominant texture orientations computed with Gabor wavelet filters vote for a consensus road vanishing point location.
