Title: MERGING OF DATA FOR DETECTING AND MONITORING OBJECTS FOR A MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for merging data coming from at least two object detectors (S1; S2) fitted to a motor vehicle (1), each detector being capable of delivering a bounding box (I) representing an object detected by said detector (S1; S2) in the immediate environment of the motor vehicle (1), the method comprising a step of associating the bounding boxes (I) delivered by each of the at least two object detectors (S1, S2) representing a same detected object as a function of their relative position, and a step of merging the associated bounding boxes (I) into a single resultant bounding box, characterised in that the association step comprises, for each bounding box, a step of determining the sides (C1; C2) of the bounding box which are directly visible to the object detector (S1, S2) having delivered said bounding box.
