Abstract

See full text

A control system of a vehicle includes an image sensor and a control having an image processor. The image sensor is disposed at the vehicle and has a field of view exterior and forward of the vehicle. The image processor is operable to process image data captured by the image sensor to determine a curvature of a road being traveled by the vehicle. Responsive at least in part to processing by the image processor of captured image data, the control is operable to determine tangents at locations along the determined curvature. Responsive to determination of the tangents, the control is operable generate an output to adjust the vehicle steering to guide the vehicle in a direction that generally corresponds to determined tangents at respective locations of the vehicle's path of travel along the curvature of the road.
