Collision detection in smart-cities by using co-simulation
MetadataShow full item record
Road traffic has become prominent in everyday living, impacting or disrupting services to people and daily routines. With the rise in automobile manufacturing and the frequency of vehicle crashes, human catastrophes, like fatalities, accidents, impairments, and destruction of property, are surging yearly. Vehicle collision detection has recently gained prominence in decreasing manually operated and autonomous vehicle fatalities. The concept of independent and self-driving cars relies on accurate object recognition, including pedestrians, vehicles, buildings, and other moving objects. Various object-detecting approaches have been proposed to help autonomous vehicles (AVs) achieve consistent, safe driving. Object prediction and detection have noticed numerous algorithmic changes that have improved speed and accuracy. In this study, I used a traffic dataset produced by a CARLA simulator to anticipate collisions using the Yolov7 model. I generated the dataset from a CARLA simulation bench in video sequences, manually annotated the frames, and used the deep learning algorithm Yolov7 to train them. The model predicts the collision a few seconds before it occurs in real-time. I implemented this framework to increase the safety of driving in self-driving vehicles.
