Abstract
We report progress in visual road following by autonomous robot vehicles. We present results and work in progress in the areas of system architecture, image rectification and camera calibration, oriented edge tracking, color classification and road-region segmentation, extracting geometric structure, and the use of a map. In test runs of an outdoor robot vehicle, the Terregator, under control of the Warp computer, we have demonstrated continuous motion vision-guided road-following at speeds up to 1.08 km/hour with image processing and steering servo loop times of 3 sec.
