Xylon Solutions for Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Warning

Xylon offers full Xilinx® Spartan®-6 FPGA based design framework for two vision-based embedded applications: Pedestrian Detection and Rear Looking Lane Departure Warning.

Pedestrian Detection

Real-time pedestrian/human detection using video images received from a camera is an emerging application. Its application fields range from video surveillance, driving assistance systems, robot navigation, assistive technology for the visually impaired, content-based indexing to advanced human-machine interfaces.

Pedestrian detection is typically a hard task for a number of reasons: the object of interest appear in highly cluttered backgrounds and has a wide range of appearances, due to body size and pose, clothing and outdoor lighting conditions. In addition, a pedestrian detector could have to work with videos captured from a moving camera where the background is not static.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning Systems (LDWS), are typically electronic automotive systems that identify and track the markings corresponding to the lane boundaries, locate the vehicle position with respect to them and issue a warning when the vehicle crosses the lane bounds.

Typically the LDWS systems are forward looking and use a camera(s) mounted in front of a vehicle. Xylon IP cores support implementations of the Rear Looking Lane Departure Warning systems that offer many advantages: work with a camera mounted at the back end of the vehicle to reduce cost, simpler, robust and a fast to compute lane model. The back end mounted cameras are typically used for Rear-View Camera application, Surround View, etc., which means that the Rear Looking LDWS can be added in the FPGA based automotive system with no additional costs in regard to vision sensors.
