Are road markings good enough for future driving?
Road markings are essential to ensure good driving conditions. Traditionally, the characterization of the road marking has been standardized by the visibility of the human drivers. However, AV technology relies on a machine perception of road markings. This raises the question whether the current standards and models need to be adapted to enable a sufficient quality for detection by AV's. This presentation summarizes the result of two projects which investigate what affects the detection, and the road authorities' need for maintenance of the road infrastructure to meet the demands of the future with automated driving.
