Image Processing for Vehicular Applications

Reference work entry


In developing a vision system for a vehicle, different setup constraints and issues must be considered.

Space, wiring, or lighting are also typical issues to be also faced in industrial scenarios; nevertheless, when a vision system has to be deployed inside a vehicle they have to be more carefully studied and often drive the hardware selection.

Moreover, cameras are to be installed on moving vehicles and this led to additional problems to be faced. In fact, camera movements, oscillations and vibrations, or different and even extreme illumination conditions have to be taken in account when developing machine vision software.
