Robust Vehicle Detection Under Adverse Weather Conditions Using Auto-encoder Feature

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.
