Vehicle guidance system

University of Southern Queensland (1998) Vehicle guidance system. .


Abstract

A method of guiding a vehicle including the steps of: acquiring and storing a digitised image of a scene containing at least one row of objects; selecting a portion of the image; analysing the portion of the image to identify said objects; performing a regression calculation on the objects to locate a position of the row in terms of a lateral displacement value compared to a previously identified row; converting the lateral displacement to a steering correction signal; and applying the steering correction signal to steering means of the vehicle to effect vehicle guidance.
