Abstract--Given a single image of an arbitrary road, that may
not be well-paved, or have clearly delineated edges, or some a
priori known color or texture distribution, is it possible for a
computer to find this road? This paper addresses this question
by decomposing the road detection process into two steps: the
estimation of the vanishing point associated with the main
(straight) part of the road, followed by the segmentation of the
corresponding road area based on the detected vanishing point.
