Centered Driver Assistance Systems and Full Surround Capture
Many researchers are currently working on the problem
of making our highways safer for driving. One method of providing this
safety is to examine the link between the driver and the automobile to
see what modifications can be made to the automobile to assist the
driver. This includes advanced warning systems and improved user
interfaces. In order to warn the driver of potentially dangerous
situations such as vehicle cut-ins, driver distraction, driver
drowsiness, problems with the vehicle, and unintended lane departures,
the complete vehicle context is required. This complete vehicle context
includes the vehicle surroundings, vehicle interior, and vehicle state.
