Paper Abstract

Object detection in road scenes is an unavoidable task to develop autonomous vehicles and driving assistance systems. Deep neural networks have shown great performances using conventional imaging in ideal cases but they fail to properly detect objects in case of unstable scenes such as high reflections, occluded objects or small objects. Next to that, Polarized imaging, characterizing the light wave, can describe an object not only by its shape or color but also by its reflection properties. That feature is a reliable indicator of the physical nature of the object even under poor illumination or strong reflections. In this paper, we show how polarimetric images, combined with deep neural networks, contribute to enhance object detection in road scenes. Experimental results illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework at the end of this paper.
