This paper proposes a vanishing point-based road detection method. Firstly, a vanishing point is detected using a texture-based method proposed in a recent study. After that, a histogram is generated for detecting two road borders. The road area is defined as the region between the two road borders and below the vanishing point. The experimental results demonstrate that our method performs well in general road images.
