Major Research topic:
Applications of Augmented Reality to ADAS

Abstract:
Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience where real objects are “augmented” and enhanced through the integration of computer generated virtual graphics. Up to now, AR is used only in small and static environments, like rooms or laboratories, where localization and mapping algorithms are precise and robust. Those algorithms do not work properly in wide and moving environments, like vehicles moving along the route. The purpose of this PhD research activity is to analyse and develop Augmented Reality-based ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems). ADAS help the driver with safety features to avoid collisions by offering technologies that alert the driver to potential problems. The integration of AR with ADAS could increase safety during driving even more: nowadays, ADAS warnings are showed to the driver through simple abstract symbols on the vehicle dashboard, without any specific information about the location of the danger. With¬†AR is possible to show hazard warnings directly overlaid to the real danger, reducing time used to look at the dashboard and uncertainty of understanding the type of danger.
