Abstract

The navigation technology in autonomous vehicles is an artificial intelligence application which remains unsolved and has been significantly explored by the automotive and technological industries. Many image processing and computer vision techniques allow significant improvements on such recent technologies. Using this motivation as a basis, this work proposes a novel methodology based on Multichannel Convolutional Neural Networks (M-CNN) capable of estimating the steering angle of an autonomous vehicle, having as only input images captured by a camera attached to the vehicle’s frontal area. We propose five Convolutional Neural Network architectures: 1-channel, 2-channel and 3-channel in the convolution step. Based on the performed tests using a public video dataset, it is presented a quantitative comparison between the proposed models.
