1. Wälivaara, Marcus. General Object Detection Using Superpixel Preprocessing.

Degree: Computer Vision, 2017, Linköping University

The objective of this master’s thesis work is to evaluate the potential benefit of a superpixel preprocessing step for general object detection in a traffic environment. The various effects of different superpixel parameters on object detection performance, as well as the benefit of including depth information when generating the superpixels are investigated. In this work, three superpixel algorithms are implemented and compared, including a proposal for an improved version of the popular Spectral Linear Iterative Clustering superpixel algorithm (SLIC). The proposed improved algorithm utilises a coarse-to-fine approach which outperforms the original SLIC for high-resolution images. An object detection algorithm is also implemented and evaluated. The algorithm makes use of depth information obtained by a stereo camera to extract superpixels corresponding to foreground objects in the image. Hierarchical clustering is then applied, with the segments formed by the clustered superpixels indicating potential objects in the input image. The object detection algorithm managed to detect on average 58% of the objects present in the chosen dataset. It performed especially well for detecting pedestrians or other objects close to the car. Altering the density distribution of the superpixels in the image yielded an increase in detection rate, and could be achieved both with or without utilising depth information. It was also shown that the use of superpixels greatly reduces the amount of computations needed for the algorithm, indicating that a real-time implementation is feasible.

2. Schennings, Jacob. Deep Convolutional Neural Networks for Real-Time Single Frame Monocular Depth Estimation.

Degree: Division of Systems and Control, 2017, Uppsala University

Vision based active safety systems have become more frequently occurring in modern vehicles to estimate depth of the objects ahead and for autonomous driving (AD) and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). In this thesis a lightweight deep convolutional neural network performing real-time depth estimation on single monocular images is implemented and evaluated. Many of the vision based automatic brake systems in modern vehicles only detect pre-trained object types such as pedestrians and vehicles. These systems fail to detect general objects such as road debris and roadside obstacles. In stereo vision systems the problem is resolved by calculating a disparity image from the stereo image pair to extract depth information. The distance to an object can also be determined using radar and LiDAR systems. By using this depth information the system performs necessary actions to avoid collisions with objects that are determined to be too close. However, these systems are also more expensive than a regular mono camera system and are therefore not very common in the average consumer car. By implementing robust depth estimation in mono vision systems the benefits from active safety systems could be utilized by a larger segment of the vehicle fleet. This could drastically reduce human error related traffic accidents and possibly save many lives. The network architecture evaluated in this thesis is more lightweight than other CNN architectures previously used for monocular depth estimation. The proposed architecture is therefore preferable to use on computationally lightweight systems. The network solves a supervised regression problem during the training procedure in order to produce a pixel-wise depth estimation map. The network was trained using a sparse ground truth image with spatially incoherent and discontinuous data and output a dense spatially coherent and continuous depth map prediction. The spatially incoherent ground truth posed a problem of discontinuity that was addressed by a masked loss function with regularization. The network was able to predict a dense depth estimation on the KITTI dataset with close to state-of-the-art performance.
