Abstract—Existing deep learning-based obstacle detection
systems are often designed and implemented based on raw
input feature. These systems obtain high accuracy under
normal driving conditions. But they fail to operate under
difficult driving conditions, which are different from their
training. Recently, an unsupervised auto-encoder has been
successfully applied to produce robust input features for a
stereo matching system under difficult driving conditions.
Therefore, this paper investigates an auto-encoder feature to
improve the performance of existing vehicle detections under
adverse weather conditions. Experimental results show that
the proposed method obtained better result than existing
state-of-the-art object detection methods in term of accuracy.
Index Terms—Vehicle detection, auto-encoder, deep learning, and local binary pattern.
