RESA: Recurrent Feature-Shift Aggregator for Lane Detection

08/31/2020 ∙ by Tu Zheng, et al. ∙ 9

Lane detection is one of the most important tasks in self-driving. Due to various complex scenarios (e.g., severe occlusion, ambiguous lanes, and etc.) and the sparse supervisory signals inherent in lane annotations, lane detection task is still challenging. Thus, it is difficult for ordinary convolutional neural network (CNN) trained in general scenes to catch subtle lane feature from raw image. In this paper, we present a novel module named REcurrent Feature-Shift Aggregator (RESA) to enrich lane feature after preliminary feature extraction with an ordinary CNN. RESA takes advantage of strong shape priors of lanes and captures spatial relationships of pixels across rows and columns. It shifts sliced feature map recurrently in vertical and horizontal directions and enables each pixel to gather global information. With the help of slice-by-slice information propagation, RESA can conjecture lanes accurately in challenging scenarios with weak appearance clues. Moreover, we also propose a Bilateral Up-Sampling Decoder which combines coarse grained feature and fine detailed feature in up-sampling stage, and it can recover low-resolution feature map into pixel-wise prediction meticulously. Our method achieves state-of-the-art results on two popular lane detection benchmarks (CULane and Tusimple). The code will be released publicly available.
