Papers in the collection focus on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) which are gaining major importance all vehicle segments. The effectiveness of these systems is based upon the ability to not only sense the outside world and the ability to use the information intelligently.
With a mandate in Europe for Autonomous emergency braking systems, there is a development happening with radar and camera based systems to do collision mitigation. The challenges include robust object tracking, stationary object detection, reactions for false positives etc. The developments and challenges in the collision mitigation technology are included in this collection.
