Developing secure autonomous cars is one of the biggest trend in the car industry nowadays. These systems are very complex and consist several modules. Lane detection is a crucial part of these systems, which helps to detect the lane and control the car to stay within that.
In my thesis I am going to review the fundamental basics of computer vision. I collected the common solutions and I will describe how these work. I participated in a project where we created a framework, which helps the development and makes it possible to test and simulate the result on videos. We have implemented this framework in C++ using OpenCV, and we extended the library’s classes and functions for more convinient use.
The main goal of my essay is to introduce the lane detecting algorithm which I implemented. My solution can detect the lane and find the center of it. I have tested my program on videos for the present but I will have the oportunity to implement the lane keeping function by controlling the car in the near future.
