No easy Task for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems to read Road Markings correctly

article imageIt is not always easy for advanced driver assistance systems to read road markings. Sunshine, shadows and rain are just some of the factors that can affect readability. The systems are also occasionally confused by longitudinal cracks. VTI researcher Sara Nygårdhs is project manager for Autonomous Vehicles and Road Markings (AVRM). Launched somewhat belatedly in spring 2021, the project is expected to be completed by July 2023.
