Abstract

Automatic road marking recognition is a key problem within the domain of automotive vision that lends support to both autonomous urban driving and augmented driver assistance such as situationally aware navigation systems. Here we propose an approach to this problem based on the extraction of robust road marking features via a novel pipeline of inverse perspective mapping and multi-level binarisation. A trained classifier combined with additional rule-based post-processing then facilitates the real-time delivery of road marking information as required. The approach is shown to operate successfully over a range of lighting, weather and road surface conditions.
