Paper Abstract

This paper describes a method for determining the range of visibility of a driver or observer with normal vision by means of analyzing image sequences. The scope of application of such a range-finding system can be seen on the one hand as a source of information to assist the human driver in cases of poor visibility, and on the other hand as part of a higher decision- making stage in an image-based automatic vehicle guidance system. For safe vehicle guidance these systems require information concerning visibility conditions in order to produce reliable interpretations of image data. The system may also be of some help in the developement of vehicles where it could serve as a tool concerning headlamp technology.
