AutoBiVision - A Novel Vision-Based Bicycle Warning System

Abstract—This article presents the concept of a novel vision-based bicycle warning system (AutoBiVision). AutoBiVision system warns the driver of the approaching bicycles without offering redundant or disturbing information, which means when the driver is focusing on one specific area, the system will focus on the other areas that the driver is not paying attention to. To this end both the driver and cyclists require to be monitored, which means two camera systems are needed: The inner camera system captures the interior of the vehicle while the outer camera system captures the bicycle lane as well as the cyclists. With the purpose of intelligently detecting and tracking the bicyclist in wider ranges, two rotatable cameras, which are components of the outer camera system, are mounted on the top of the left and right back mirrors of the vehicle, respectively. The angle control of the rotatable cameras depends on the results of bicycle tracking and bicycle lane detection. In this contribution, the main structure of the system and the initial results of a series of novel methods of bicycle lane detection, are presented. A patent is pending.

Index Terms—bicycle warning system; bicycle lane detection; rotatable cameras
