End-to-End Lane Marker Detection via Row-wise Classification

June 2020

tl;dr: Row-wise pixel classification of lane detection from Qualcomm Korea.

Overall impression

This is inspired by GM Isreal’s drivable space prediction method StixelNetV2.

It translate the lane detection problem into a row-wise classification task, which takes advantage of the innate shape of the lane markers (one x value per y) (which is just the opposite for DS prediction, one y value per x, as shown in StixelNetV2).

Pixel segmentation task will require postprocessing algorithm such as pixel wise clustering algorithm.
