Title: METHOD FOR COMBINING A ROAD SIGN RECOGNITION SYSTEM AND A LANE DETECTION SYSTEM OF A MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
The method relates to a method for combining a road sign recognition system (1) and a lane detection system (2) of a motor vehicle, wherein the road sign recognition system (1) generates road sign information, and the lane detection system (2) generates lane profile information, from sensor data of a camera-based or video-based sensor system (4); the invention provides that meaning-indicating data for road signs are generated from the lane profile information, the data which indicates the meaning for road signs are used to check the plausibility and/or interpret the road sign information, data which indicates the lane profile are generated from the road sign information, and the data which indicates the lane profile used to check the plausibility of, and/or interpret, the lane profile information.
