  • Patent number: 10145951
    Abstract: An object-detection system includes a radar sensor, a camera, and a controller. The radar-sensor is suitable for mounting on a vehicle and is used to detect a radar-signal reflected by an object in a radar-field-of-view. The radar-signal is indicative of a range, range-rate, and a direction to the object relative to the vehicle. The camera is used to capture an image of a camera-field-of-view that overlaps the radar-field-of-view. The controller is in communication with the radar-sensor and the camera. The controller is configured to determine a range-map for the image based on the range and the direction of the radar detection, define a detection-zone in the image based on the range-map, and process only the detection-zone of the image to determine an identity of the object.

  • Publication number: 20170242117
    Abstract: A method and system that performs low level fusion of Radar or LiDAR data with an image from a camera. The system includes a radar-sensor, a camera, and a controller. The radar-sensor is used to detect a radar-signal reflected by an object in a radar-field-of-view. The camera is used to capture an image of the object in a camera-field-of-view that overlaps the radar-field of view. The controller is in communication with the radar-sensor and the camera. The controller is configured to determine a location of a radar-detection in the image indicated by the radar-signal, determine a parametric-curve of the image based on the radar detections, define a region-of-interest of the image based on the parametric-curve derived from the radar-detection, and process the region-of-interest of the image to determine an identity of the object. The region-of-interest may be a subset of the camera-field-of-view.

  • Patent number: 9613443
    Abstract: A method for generating a representation of a polyline formed by a sequence of points determines an overcomplete set of geometric primitives that redundantly fit overlapping sections of the polyline. The overcomplete fitting is performed such that the set includes one or more types of geometric primitives, each fitted to a section of the polyline formed by a subset of the sequence of points. The method determines a local cost of each geometric primitive based on a combination of a fitting error and an encoding cost of the geometric primitive, and determines a join cost of each successive pair of adjacent primitives. Next, the method determines a combination of the geometric primitives forming a connected path along a length of the polyline such that a sum of the local costs of the geometric primitives and the join costs of adjacent primitives in the combination is optimized.

  • Patent number: 9213896
    Abstract: In a sequence of images of a scene acquired by a stationary camera, objects are detected and tracked by determining a first set of candidate foreground regions according to a background model. A second set of candidate foreground regions is determined according to a set of foreground models. Then, candidate foreground regions in the first set and the second set are validated to produce a final set of foreground regions in the image that include the objects.
