Road Boundary Detection using In-vehicle Monocular Camera

Kazuki Goro, Kazunori Onoguchi

Abstract

When a lane marker such as a white line is not drawn on the road or it’s hidden by snow, it’s important for the lateral motion control of the vehicle to detect the boundary line between the road and the roadside object such as curbs, grasses, side walls and so on. Especially, when the road is covered with snow, it’s necessary to detect the boundary between the snow side wall and the road because other roadside objects are occluded by snow. In this paper, we proposes the novel method to detect the shoulder line of a road including the boundary with the snow side wall from an image of an in-vehicle monocular camera. Vertical lines on an object whose height is different from a road surface are projected onto slanting lines when an input image is mapped to a road surface by the inverse perspective mapping. The proposed method detects a road boundary using this characteristic. In order to cope with the snow surface where various textures appear, we introduce the degree of road boundary that responds strongly at the boundary with the area where slant edges are dense. Since the shape of the snow wall is complicated, the boundary line is extracted by the Snakes using the degree of road boundary as image forces. Experimental results using the KITTI dataset and our own dataset including snow road show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
