On-road vehicle detection and lane detection are critical tasks in vision-based active safety systems for vehicles. UCSD Inventors have come up with a robust and efficient computational method for allowing a car to detect other cars and lanes (from lane markers). By focusing on computational efficiency - while maintaining effective sensitivity and specificity for car and lane detection - this invention meets an important requirement for embedded realization of such systems for in-vehicle electronic systems. Also, with emerging hybrid and electric vehicles that rely on battery power, it is important that advanced driver assistance systems are designed such that they are power efficient.
