    The “open road” and the freedom it represents is an alluring image for people shackled to a daily commute. Nonetheless, freedom for commuters of the future is far more likely to come as freedom in traffic-rather than freedom from it-through smarter highways, vehicles, and traffic-control systems View full abstract»

    Most computer-vision systems for vehicle guidance are for highway scenarios. Developing autonomous or driver-assistance systems for complex urban traffic poses new algorithmic and system-architecture challenges. To address these issues, the authors introduce their intelligent Stop&Go system and discuss appropriate algorithms and approaches for vision-module control View full abstract»
