PU10-41 Vulnerable Road User Detection system for city buses (VRUD)

OBS! ANSÖKNINGSTIDEN FÖR DETTA EXJOBB HAR LÖPT UT.
Background
City buses are often travelling within urban areas with a high number of pedestrians and bicyclists, also denoted as Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs). Recent studies shows that one third of all fatalities in bus related accidents are VRUs.

With increasing effort from vehicle manufacturers and society to reduce the total number of fatalities in traffic accidents, the problem with VRUs has been addressed from many points. For cars, advanced driver assisting systems to prevent accidents with VRUs are already on the market and the next step should be trucks and buses.

In recent master thesis at Scania, investigations of how to implement a Vulnerable Road User Detection (VRUD) system have been carried out. Scania is developing several parallel technologies to find the best system. A camera system with an algorithm for detecting objects is one of these technologies.

Target
The aim for this thesis work is to install a prototype system in a city bus and optimize the system for this application.

Assignment
? Install the camera on a city bus
? Test and optimize the system algorithm and its parameters for this application (aiming for a common system in trucks and buses)
? Investigate the developed warning methods and strategies and suggest how the driver should be warned.
? Investigate methods of testing such a system and suggest which method that is preferred in this application.

Education/skills Master of Science or similar with good skills in signal processing and programming, preferably with major in Mechatronics.

Number of students: 1-2
Estimated time needed: No less than 20 weeks
