Two smartphone-based systems that track users outside the visibility of GPS and recognize various objects found on the road scene in real time have been developed. Although these new technology systems have the same function as those high-end sensors currently used, they only cost a fraction of their prices.

SegNet can capture images on road scene and categorize these on 12 various types whether it is the road, a building or a pedestrian passing by. Researchers claim that its initial tests reveal that it is more efficient than the costly laser and sensors sold and made available in…
