Abstract

The problems encountered in building a driver assistance system are numerous. The collection of information about real environment by sensors is erroneous and incomplete. When the sensors are mounted on a moving observer it is difficult to find out whether a detected motion was caused by ego-motion or by an independent object moving. The collected data can be analyzed by several algorithms with different features designed for different tasks. To gain the demanded information their results have to be integrated and interpreted. In order to achieve an increase in reliability of information a stabilization over time and knowledge about important features have to be applied. Different solutions for driver assistance systems have been published. An approach proposed by Rossi et al. [8] showed an application for a security system. An application being tested on highways has been presented by Bertozzi and Broggi [1]. Dickmanns et al. presented a driving assistance system based on a 4D-approach [2]. Those systems were mainly designed for highway scenarios, while the architecture presented by Franke and Görzig [3] has been tested in urban environment.

Extended abstract of the paper Eine flexible Architektur für Fahrerassistenzsy-steme [6] accepted by the DAGM-99 for the common part of the DAGM-99 and KI-99.
