    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (562 KB)

    Money is not being spent on improving the road networks to cope with the increased traffic on the roads. In a recent survey carried out by the RAC it was found that nearly 20% of the drivers travelling in London were lost. If we cannot increase the road building programme or reduce the amount of vehicles on the road, we must ensure that those vehicles on the road are on the correct route to their ...

    This paper presents an algorithm that uses a variable order explicit polynomial to track lane edges. The order is selected online using the sequential sum of squares F test. Discontinuous edges are estimated using a MLE of the model estimate and a linear estimate generated using principal component analysis. An online estimation of the reliability of the model is generated recursively. The algorit... View full abstract»

    We discuss our work towards the development of a safety analysis method. The analysis in the proposed method is performed using an algorithm for the automatic synthesis of fault trees that can be applied on the system at different stages of its design. At the early stages of the design, the algorithm can generate fault trees on the basis of abstract functional specifications of the system. Mechani... View full abstract»

    A new fuel-efficiency support tool has been designed that has proven to reduce fuel consumption significantly by inducing a directed and consistent change in driving behaviour. The fuel-efficiency support tool continuously determines the current context of a vehicle and calculates the optimal driving behaviour for minimising fuel consumption within this context. If actual driving behaviour deviate... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (431 KB)

    A new symbiotic genetic algorithm (SGA)-based active contour model (Snake) is proposed to track the B-spline contour of obstacles. It exploits the local control properties of the B-spline to decompose the contour into subcontours and optimizes each subcontour in separate genetic algorithms (GA). Unlike GA-based Snake, a SGASnake can track the obstacles outline more robustly. Application-specific i... View full abstract»
