Plenary Talks

Soft-Prototyping Camera Designs for Autonomous Driving

Dr. Joyce E. Farrell, executive director
Stanford University Center for Image Systems Engineering (SCIEN)

Abstract: It is impractical to build different cameras and then acquire and label the necessary data for every potential camera design. Creating software simulations that can generate synthetic camera images captured in physically realistic 3D scenes (soft prototyping) is the only practical approach. We implemented soft-prototyping tools that can quantitatively simulate image radiance and camera designs to create synthetic camera images that are input to convolutional neural networks for car detection. We show that performance derived from training on physically-based multispectral simulations of camera images generalizes to real camera images with nearly the same performance level as training based on real camera image datasets. Using simulations, we can develop and test new metrics for quantifying the effect that different camera parameters have on CNN performance. As an example, we introduce a new metric based on the distance at which object detection reaches 50%. Our open-source and freely available prototyping tools, together with performance-based metrics, enable us to evaluate the effect that changes in scene and camera parameters have on CNN performance.
