One of most exciting engineering challenges today is building a reliable self-driving car or driving support system. Today's vehicles offer a huge variety of sensors that can feed any algorithm with enough data to provide a pretty solid driving support experience. On top of this, despite some differences, smartphones sensors are robust enough to provide a rich set of environmental information. During this presentation, we'll discover how to implement computer vision solutions on Android with OpenCV, and how to mash-up device and vehicle data to build a driver assistant solution with open source technologies.
