Driving Assistance System Based on Vision
The main aim of the project is to improve road safety and take a big step forward in autonomous driving by means of:
- Achieving development and advances in the design of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems)
- Obtaining a more complete analysis of the context and the driver’s situation
- Giving assistance to drivers to be able to prevent accidents and mitigate the consequences of collisions
- Designing and developing intuitive and personalised interfaces to warn and help the driver to anticipate potentially critical events
The Proposed Solution
A Driving Help System has been developed, integrating the different phases of:
- Context analysis. This is a 720º assessment; that is, sensors have been implanted which permit a 360º assessment of both the interior and the exterior of the car.
- Information Management. Through embedded systems, a fusion is carried out of the unprocessed data obtained by sensors.
- Information Processing. The metadata is processed and a dynamic local map is prepared for the comprehension of the scene and assessment of possible risks.
