Lane Keeping System Using Real Time Pathway Detection
This paper deals with the detection of lanes present on the road and thus act as a driver assistance system to ensure road safety. The vision-based system begins with processing the image captured by the camera and undergoes different step-by-step process starting with RGB to grayscale conversion, various filtering methods to remove the noise present in images, methods to omit out unwanted details from the image and finally detection of straight lines using Hough transform. The paper also proposes various application that can be used after detecting the lanes and it includes automatic braking system, steering torque and various alarm systems including seat vibration and beeping sound. These methods can provide the driver a helping hand in driving and thus avoid accidents caused due to driver’s carelessness.
