Camera-based driver assistance systems for mobile machinery

The goal of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems is to protect lives by providing better visibility of hazardous areas around commercial vehicles and mobile machinery. Camera-based systems are designed to make mobile machine operators more successful by preventing property damage and automating mobile processes. The challenge in commercial vehicles is that there are many different types of commercial vehicles on the market with very different appearances. This leads to facing several challenges in the field of camera-based systems around machine learning. We present solutions to more flexible camera attachment positions and the resulting need for new training data for machine learning.
