The present paper describes the framework and components of an instrumented vehicle for driver assistance and safety. The experimental platform is based on the use of an on-board computer vision system to capture the traffic signs, and on a multiple of electronic components to capture the vehicle state and identify drivers. The hardware architecture is designed with the purpose of making the deployment of functionalities related to driver assistance and road safety easy. The paper covers firstly the description of the hardware architecture, and then describes some of the implemented functionalities such as driver assistance based on traffic signs detection and recognition, traffic violation recorder, and a realization of an emergency call system.
