This paper deals with the problem of obstacle detection in traffic applications. The proposed device allows a driver to receive the current road and vehicle environment information. The perception of the environment is performed through a fast processing of image sequences acquired from a single camera mounted on a vehicle. This approach is based on frame motion analysis. The road motion is first computed through a fast and robust wavelets analysis. Finally, we detect the areas that have a different motion thanks to a Bayesian modelization. Results shown in this paper prove that the proposed method permits the detection of any obstacle on all type of road in various image conditions.
