Learning to See the Hidden Part of the Vehicle in the Autopilot Scene
AbstractRecent advances in deep learning have shown exciting promise in low-level artificial intelligence tasks such as image classification, speech recognition, object detection, and semantic segmentation, etc. Artificial intelligence has made an important contribution to autopilot, which is a complex high-level intelligence task. However, the real autopilot scene is quite complicated. The first accident of autopilot occurred in 2016. It resulted in a fatal crash where the white side of a vehicle appeared similar to a brightly lit sky. The root of the problem is that the autopilot vision system cannot identify the part of a vehicle when the part is similar to the background. A method called DIDA was first proposed based on the deep learning network to see the hidden part. DIDA cascades the following steps: object detection, scaling, image inpainting assuming a hidden part beside the car, object re-detection from inpainted image, zooming back to the original size, and setting an alarm region by comparing two detected regions. DIDA was tested in a similar scene and achieved exciting results. This method solves the aforementioned problem only by using optical signals. Additionally, the vehicle dataset captured in Xi’an, China can be used in subsequent research. View Full-Text
