SW Release Applicability: This module is available in NVIDIA DRIVE Software releases.

About This Module

The freespace module implements the functionality to detect drive-able collision-free space on road. The NVIDIA proprietary DNN named OpenRoadNet is trained to distinguish the boundary that separates obstacles from drive-able space. For each input image, this module employs OpenRoadNet to infer free space boundary coordinates and extracts semantic labels of the blocking obstacles along the boundary. With the proper initialization of camera intrinsics and extrinsics, the module outputs free space boundary in top-view vehicle coordinate system.
