Real-time Bicycle Recognition for Intelligent Rear Collision Warning Systems

Accurate and real-time recognition of pedestrians and cyclists have recently emerged as a premier research topic in the field of intelligent transport systems and computer vision. The authors present a vision-based framework for reliable recognition of cyclists in urban traffic environment with tight real-time constraints. The cyclist recognition completes the authors obstacle detection and recognition system composed of two fish-eye cameras invaluable for detecting side-appearing obstacles. The performance of this approach is evaluated and compared with recent publications using real-world data in various urban scenarios. The authors experimental results suggest that it is possible to obtain high recognition rates (95%) and low false-alarm rates (less than 5%) by fusion of three dimensional (3D) and two dimensional (2D) data obtained with ultra wide-angle stereo images.
