Research Outline

We are conducting R&D on systems that assist safe, environment-friendly driving for elderly persons or learner drivers. Specifically, we have been developing computer-based technologies to detect various targets (e.g., pedestrians, vehicles, roads, white lines on the roads) and recognize the complex environment around vehicles based on data obtained through video cameras, laser scanners, the global positioning system, and other sensors. Objective of research project is to implement vehicles with functions for giving warnings, accelerating/decelerating/stopping vehicles, avoiding obstacles in hazardous situations, and finding optimal routes automatically.
