Road detection is an important problem with application to driver assistance systems and autonomous, self-guided vehicles. The focus of this paper is on the problem of feature extraction and classification for front-view road detection. Specifically, we propose using Support Vector Machines (SVM) for road detection and effective approach for self-supervised online learning. The proposed road detection algorithm is capable of automatically updating the training data for online training which reduces the possibility of misclassifying road and non-road classes and improves the adaptability of the road detection algorithm. The algorithm presented here can also be seen as a novel framework for self-supervised online learning in the application of classification-based road detection algorithm on intelligent vehicle.
