LANE DETECTION: A NEW, LOW COST SYSTEM OFFERING SEVERAL UNIQUE APPLICATION OPPORTUNITIES. LIS100

Knowing the lane width, and vehicle position within it, are important parameters for the vehicle operator to be aware of at all times. Due to the fact that the driving environment is laid out for the human eyes, sensors have been developed which operate at or near the visible wave-length range that can play an important role in detecting the lane borders. Only systems able to cope autonomously with today's infrastructure promise to be successful in today's market. An extremely high market growth is predicted for such automonous driver assistance systems. Systems relying on infrastructure changes would never allow for a rapid growth rate. The majority of communities would not spend or do not have the funding necessary to equip the roads with, for example, telematic infrastructure. (A) For the covering abstract see ITRD E106371.
