Use of visual tracking techniques and subsequent behaviour modelling for applications within the automotive industry

Lead Research Organisation: University of Surrey
Department Name: Vision Speech and Signal Proc CVSSP


The project will investigate the use of visual tracking techniques and subsequent behaviour
modelling, for various applications within the automotive industry.
In terms of driver assistance, the project will learn relationships between the environment and the
drivers controls. If these behavioural norms are broken (i.e. the system expects the driver to begin
braking, but they do not) it is possible that the driver has missed an important environmental cue
due to distraction, tiredness, etc. In this case the system can highlight to the driver (for example by
subtle highlighting) exactly which elements of the scene it believes should be contributing to a
change in driving behaviour. By exploiting low latency sensors such as event cameras, the same
system may be taken to extremes, providing rapid "reflex level" assistance to drivers travelling at
high speeds.
