Abstract

Human detection in the surroundings of mobile work machines is an important task in the development of autonomous work machines and robotics. In modern mobile work machines the driver support systems will increase possibilities to detect humans more accurately. This paper presents the method and evaluation results for detecting humans using a thermal camera. We developed sensor fusion to merge far-infrared camera with FMCW radar and stereo camera systems and obtained results for the comparison of their performance. This paper aims also to indicate the benefits of sensor fusion for detecting humans in the mobile work machine environment.
