CEN graduate awarded 2015 ICT Diploma Thesis of the Year

Our recent graduate Evio Abazi received 2015 ICT Diploma Thesis of the Year award. His thesis was titled Camera-Based Driver Assistance and Security System.
 
The winning thesis gives an innovative solution which assist drivers during the car driving. The solution combines the state of the art of software and hardware solutions. The installation of the hardware tools and as well as the right software which makes this solution possible are explained in detail in the thesis. 
 
Visual sensors are going to have a very important role in the driver assistance systems. Nowadays several car models equipped with cameras have been presented with the aim of facilitating the process of parking. Certainly, these cameras could be used for other tasks with the objective to offer a better assistance to the drivers. This thesis describes a system that is able to recognize, in real-time, people and traffic lights, warning the driver of their presence. In addition, with the rotation of the camera towards the inside of the car, it is implemented a security system that tracks the motions and informs the driver of suspicious movements during his absence. The system is designed using simple standard hardware and the computer vision library OpenCV combined to libraries created by Processing Foundation. 
We wish the best to Evio in his future!
