Detection Method of Lane Change Intentions in Other Drivers Using Hidden Markov Models


Previous researches reported that a lane change is the main cause of vehicle accidents. Therefore, inferring be- haviors in other drivers and alarming to a driver are cru- cial tasks for safety. In this paper we propose a method to estimate lane change intentions in other drivers us- ing Hidden Markov Models (HMMs). Comparing the proposed method with previous researches, we confirmed this method has higher accuracy to detect a lane change in other vehicles. And the method can recognize a slow lane change which is remained as a problem.
