Multi-Camera System Based Driver Behavior Analysis

Understanding driver behavior is an essential component in human-centric driver systems. Particularly, driver's interaction with the environment is an important factor in controlling the vehicle, though there have been very few research studies on analyzing driver behavior. Multi-camera array system has a variety of applications because of its improved resolution, frame rate, depth of field, dynamic range and disparity map from such system. This report will present an implementation of multi-camera array system with GoPro cameras to interact with the external environment of a moving vehicle on streets. So far, our major contribution contains specific analysis of GoPro hardware and protocol, integrating the system with various sensors to collect both internal and external environment information. The project will also introduce a calibration and rectification method with bundle adjustment for the multi-camera array. The goal of this project is to implement realtime intension prediction of drivers with the multi-camera array system.
