Vision system for autonomous vehicles watches not just where pedestrians walk, but how
2019-02-16T22:28:53Z - Devin Coldewey / TechCrunch
Keeping an eye on pedestrians and predicting what they’re going to do is a major part of any autonomous vehicle’s vision system. UM’s new system uses the lidar and stereo camera systems to estimate not just a person’s trajectory, but their pose and gait. This additional data helps a system predict motion and makes for a more complete set of navigation plans and contingencies. Not too much can be done with this noisy, little-studied data right now but perceiving and cataloguing it is the first step to making it an integral part of an AV’s vision system. You can read the full paper describing the new system in IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters or at Arxiv (PDF).
