Simplified Tracking Algorithms for Blind Spot Detection
Introduction of Master Thesis
On the highway, when the preferred lane of the driver becomes congested, the driver is inclined to switch to one of the neighbouring lanes, if they appear to be emptier. However, if there is a car approaching with a similar speed in the target lane, due to the limitations in the viewing angle of the driver, this can cause vehicle accidents and injuries or at least, an emergency situation. To avoid collision accidents, some vehicles have deployed Blind Spot Detection (BSD) systems. According to the position of the object occupying the blind spot zone, the BSD radar system installed on the subject vehicle must warn, may warn, or must not warn the driver (ISO, 2008).
There are already some solutions in the market for BSD systems for driver assistance systems, however coming up with scalable and modular solutions with a proven performance brings a huge market advantage. BSD is such a feature that allows modular solutions with different sensors without the necessity of a central ECU.
In this study, we will be developing a simplified tracking algorithm for MOBIS Short Range Radar (SRR) with minimum possible false alarm and increased detection rate. SRR is a reliable sensor for extracting the tracking results for the detection zone of BSD. The student will be responsible for extracting necessary and reliable information from the detection list given from the SRR.
