for Connected Autonomous Driving using Deep Neural Networks and Multi-Sensor Fusion
Connected autonomous driving has become one of the most rapidly advancing areas of research in the field of computer vision and machine learning. Object detection and tracking are two key components of an autonomous driving system.
In recent years, deep learning techniques such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have achieved state-of-the-art performance in object detection and tracking. Multi-sensor fusion, where data from multiple sensors are combined, can improve the robustness and reliability of object detection and tracking. This thesis proposes a camera-based object detection and tracking system that employs deep neural networks and multi-sensor fusion for connected autonomous driving.

Specifically, the objectives of the research are:
The proposed research will employ a combination of deep learning, computer vision, and multi- sensor fusion techniques. The methodology will consist of the following steps:
Data collection: A dataset of real-world driving scenarios will be collected using a camera-based sensor system. The dataset will include diverse driving scenarios such as urban and highway.
Object detection and tracking: A deep neural network-based object detection and tracking system will be developed using the collected data. The system will use state-of-the-art object detection and tracking algorithms.
Multi-sensor fusion: The object detection and tracking system will be extended to include data from multi cameras. The data from these sensors will be fused using techniques such as Kalman filtering.
Performance evaluation: The proposed system will be evaluated using the collected dataset and compared with existing solutions. The performance metrics will include accuracy, precision and real time performance.
Feasibility assessment: The feasibility of deploying the proposed system on a connected autonomous vehicle platform will be assessed. The assessment will consider factors such as computational complexity, real-time performance, and system integration.
The expected results of this research are:
This research proposes a camera-based object detection and tracking system that employs deep neural networks and multi-sensor fusion for connected autonomous driving. The proposed system has the potential to improve the reliability and robustness of object detection and tracking in adverse weather and lighting conditions. The research will contribute to the development of autonomous driving technology and has practical applications in areas such as transportation, logistics, and public safety.
