ARCOS is a French research project for secure driving. It aims at improving road safety and integrates engineering, human and social sciences. This paper presents an algorithm of road obstacles detection and a self-adaptive stereo vision system that have been provided and tested in the framework of the ARCOS project. In order to face with different lighting conditions, a new automatic gain and shutter control of the cameras is proposed. The conclusion of the performance of the whole system are discussed.
