    This paper deals with the development of Human-Centric Intelligent Driver Assistance Systems. Rear-end collisions account for a large portion of traffic accidents. To help mitigate this problem, predictive braking systems and adaptive cruise control systems have been developed. However, these types of systems usually rely solely on the vehicle and vehicle surround sensors, either ignoring the huma... View full abstract»

    For a vision-based traffic monitoring and enforcement system, shadows of moving objects often cause serious errors in image analysis due to misclassification of shadows and moving vehicles. An effective shadow suppression method is thus required to improve the accuracy of image analysis and this paper proposes a novel color-space ratio model for detecting shadow pixels in traffic imagery. The prop... View full abstract»

    All drivers have habits behind the wheel. Different drivers vary in how they hit the gas and brake pedals, how they turn the steering wheel, and how much following distance they keep to follow a vehicle safely and comfortably. In this paper, we model such driving behaviors as car-following and pedal operation patterns. The relationship between following distance and velocity mapped into a two-dime... View full abstract»

    Today's field programmable gate array (FPGA) architectures, like Xilinx's Virtex-II series, enable partial and dynamic run-time self-reconfiguration. This feature allows the substitution of parts of a hardware design implemented on this reconfigurable hardware, and therefore, a system can be adapted to the actual demands of applications running on the chip. Exploiting this possibility enables the ... View full abstract»
