Abstract
We have developed the Space Imaging Optical Guidance for Ground Vehicle that uses the narrow field view of the Space Imaging Measurement System based on the fixed lens and fast moving detector to detect the objects to be evaded and the wide field view of the visible optical fine camera to set the drive path. In particular the angel between the optical axis of the narrow field view and the roadside object is very small. Therefore we considered the image segmentation processing of the narrow field view. This provides the accurate detection of the roadside object and its distance. To confirm the guidance ability of the Space Imaging Optical Guidance for Ground Vehicle we tested the Space Imaging Optical Guidance for Ground Vehicle on the road. The road has the object on the road and the roadside wall. The Space Imaging Optical Guidance for Ground Vehicle can detect the object and the surface of the wall and its distance.
