More and more researchers have been making effort on developing intelligent vehicle systems. In contrast with single vehicle operation, multivehicle cooperation can bring considerable benefits to intelligent vehicles that operate in common areas. In the spirit of multivehicle cooperation, this paper describes a method that realizes a function (cooperative augmented reality, shortly as CAR) via which a vivid visualization of occluded situation can be generated for driver assistance purpose. This paper details the knowledge on 3D perspective transform of the vehicle visual data and describes an improvement for the original CAR solution presented in a related conference publication along with recent patents related to it. Experimental results are given to demonstrate the effect of the CAR solution.
Keywords: Cooperative augmented reality, multivehicle cooperation, perspective geometry, visual data transformation.
