Determination of Sensors Characteristics of Curb and Development of Surrogate Curb for the Evaluation of Vehicle Active Safety Systems
The study deals with one of the critical aspects of the Road Departure Mitigation System. The first part of the study finds out what all color combinations and patterns represent the US roadside curbs, what should be the range of Radar Reflectivity values, and LiDAR Reflectance bounds that a surrogate curb should satisfy. The later part of the thesis illustrates methods and steps on how to mimic the extracted properties, design a surrogate curb as per federal standards, and then develop a surrogate curb.
