14 - 15 March 2006
Current driver assistance systems normally rely on the detection of objects, e.g., cars, in the own vehicle’s surrounding. In this contribution observation of the road environment with a particular focus on lanes is discussed. Lane-keeping assistance is investigated for the use in heavy trucks. Then, a combination of the information obtained by lane observation and by object information is discussed to obtain a more complete representation of the own vehicle’s driving environment.
