AGV guidance system: an application of simple active contour for visual tracking

Asif, M., Arshad, M.R. and Wilson, P.A. (2005) AGV guidance system: an application of simple active contour for visual tracking In Proceedings of Enformatika: Transactions on Engineering, Computing and Technology. World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology., pp. 74-77.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


In this paper, a simple active contour based visual
tracking algorithm is presented for outdoor AGV application which is currently under development at the USM robotic research group (URRG) lab. The presented algorithm is computationally low cost and able to track road boundaries in an image sequence and can easily be implemented on available low cost hardware. The proposed algorithm used an active shape modeling using the B-spline deformable template and recursive curve fitting method to track the current orientation of the road.
