This paper presents a real-Time and robust lane detection and forward collision warning technique based on stereo cameras. First, obstacles image is obtained through stereo matching and UV-disparity segmentation algorithm. Then, Inverse Perspective Mapping(IPM) and Sobel filtering are conducted to generate a low-noise top view of the road by fusing the obstacles image and the original image. Next, Hough Transformation for the top view map is completed and the extreme points(poles) are calculated as the detected lanes according to the traffic lanes model. Besides, the host lane is selected or supplemented among all the detected lanes and the nearest obstacle in this host lane is detected for the forward collision warning. Experimental results on the public data set indicate that our method can work effectively and real-Timely in the normal structured environment.
