Road Surface Scanning using Stereo Cameras for Motorcycles

Abstract

Active and semi-active suspension systems for vehicles became quite popular in the recent years as they allow for a smoother and safer ride compared to conventional suspension systems. The performance of an active/semi-active suspension system can be even more improved if the road condition in front of the vehicle is known. Currently only a few luxury cars combine fully active suspension with stereo cameras for such a predictive adaptation. However, we are not aware of any existing system for motorcycles. In this work, we present an algorithm that can cope with the rolling movement of a motorcycle. In addition, it can robustly reconstruct the road profile within a single time step and does not require temporal integration which allows real-time processing up to very high speeds at a precision in the order of millimeters. The complete system has been successfully tested on a German highway and a precise road laser scan has been used for evaluation.
