Paper Abstract

As the efficiency of road segmentation has a direct effect on the reliability of road following and planning -- and consequently the speed of the Autonomous Land Vehicle (ALV) -- road segmentation is one of the most preliminary and important tasks for the road following and planning of ALV, and a variety of methods for color road segmentation have been proposed. This presentation proposes a new data-fusion-based color road segmentation method in which a pyramid-based data structure and the corresponding region splitting and combination techniques for the classification of sensed areas are adopted. In the segmentation process, the roads are first segmented in two 1-D color spaces, and the data fusion technique is then used to combine the two classification results, improving the accuracy of the road segmentation.
