A STUDY OF SENSOR FUSION TECHNOLOGY FOR COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM

In Japan, development of safety technology, including infrastructure for automobiles, is an important social task as the death toll from traffic accidents exceeds 10,000 every year. To counter the problem, the Ministry of Transport has been carrying out a 5-year program called the Advanced Safety Vehicle (ASV) Program. Under the program, Japanese automakers are involved in the development of an experimental ASV. This paper discusses a foward-looking sensor for an automatic collision-reduction braking system that was developed during the research and development of ASV project. The sensor is composed of two CCD cameras and a millimeter wave radar. The cameras recognize curve radius and preceding vehicles. The curve radius is used to control beam steering of the millimeter wave radar. The recognized distance by the cameras and detected distance by the radar are verified with each other to obstacle detection.
