  • Patent number: 10719938
    Abstract: A method of recognizing edges in a camera image (A) produced by a camera, includes steps of: assigning (S1) a respective scaling size to each pixel (aij) of the camera image (A) as a function of an object distance, relative to the camera, of a spatial region imaged in the respective pixel (aij); producing (S2) an integral image (B) from the camera image (A); applying (S3) Haar wavelet transforms to the pixels (bij) of the integral image (B) to generate a gradient image (C), wherein a scaling of the Haar wavelets is determined for each pixel (bij) of the integral image (B) taking account of the scaling size assigned to the corresponding pixel (aij) of the camera image (A); and recognizing (S4) edges in the camera image (A) using the generated gradient image (C).

  • Patent number: 8639433
    Abstract: To support a driver in guiding a road vehicle, the lane markings of the road, traffic signs and/or vehicle license plates are detected by an environment sensor system, which produces corresponding image data, which is evaluated by an image evaluation system by comparison to stored country-specific data. From that evaluation, at least one country estimation signal is generated in an image processor, and then a country signal indicating the current location of the vehicle is generated from the at least one country estimation signal by a microprocessor. The country signal correspondingly activates a driver information device outputting country-specific information for guidance of the vehicle and/or the country signal is fed to a driver assistance system that supports the guidance of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20090103779
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for multi-sensorial object detection, wherein sensor information is evaluated together from several different sensor signal flows having different sensor signal properties. For said evaluation, the at least two sensor signal flows are not adapted to each other and/or projected onto each other, but object hypotheses are generated in each of the at least two sensor signal flows and characteristics for at least one classifier are generated based of said object hypotheses. Said object hypotheses are subsequently evaluated by means of a classifier and are associated with one or more categories. At least two categories are identified and the object is associated with one of the two categories.

  • Patent number: 5787815
    Abstract: A method and device for tilting a car body of a vehicle in a trackbound train when the train passes through a track curve. The respective vehicles in the train comprise bogies supporting a car body resting thereon, includes devices for tilting the car body in relation to the bogies, for indicating a track curve, and a control system for controlling the tilting of the car body in dependence on the geometry of the track curve. The position of the train along a route is determined point-by-point by the train being equipped with devices for detecting its position and by registering the curve geometry of the track when the train runs over a track section from the determined position, and storing it in real time as a sequence of measured values describing the curve geometry of the track section in an electronic memory. The curve-geometry data about the track section, previously stored in the memory is used for controlling the tilting of the car body during the next passage through curves within the track section.
