The electrical components‘ increasing performance has led to digital image processing becoming more and more significant. As a result, digital image processing now occupies a central role in the field of sensor technology for autonomous vehicles. The first mass-produced vehicles without a steering wheel are to be authorized in Germany as of 2018. The aim is to free up the driver, as autonomous vehicles have the capacity to recognize traffic signs and obstacles, observe the flow of traffic and evaluate potential risks.
In our "Digital Image Processing" laboratory (BIV), students engage in simple exercises, preparing them for related application areas. Typical exercises include the recognition of objects or individuals and geometrical measurements.
