A collision avoidance system for railroad vehicles needs to determine their location in the railroad network precisely and reliably. For a vehicle-based system, that is independent from the infrastructure, it is vital to determine the direction a railroad vehicle turns at switches. In this paper a vision based approach is presented that allows to achieve this reliably, even under difficult conditions. In the images of a camera that observes the area in front of a railroad vehicle the rail… CONTINUE READING
