In this paper, we propose a new road lane model based on linear fuzzy space mathematics, coupled with a robust road lane detection method using fuzzy c-means clustering. The fuzzy line based road lane model presented here describes a lane as a set of fuzzy collinear fuzzy points. The proposed algorithm for road line detection is able to deal with imprecise data and enables reduced computational complexity (proportional to the number of fuzzy points multiplied by the number of fuzzy lines) versus a standard Hough transformation. Experimental results show that the proposed method is fast, and robust enough for use in real-time applications. The proposed method has been implemented as an Android-based mobile phone application.
