Abstract

【課題】本発明は、撮像映像における自車両と周囲の領域の境界をドライバに容易に認識させて周辺の障害物との衝突を防止する表示装置を提供することを目的とする。 【解決手段】本発明の表示装置は、撮像手段1が撮像した自車両周辺の撮像映像から自車両領域を抽出する自車両領域抽出手段6と、自車両周辺の撮像映像から自車両領域と自車両の周辺領域との境界エッジを抽出する境界エッジ抽出手段7と、自車両領域のコントラストを抽出するコントラスト抽出手段8と、境界エッジを強調する強調手段9と、強調手段9が強調した境界エッジを含む自車両周辺の撮像映像を表示する表示手段3とを備え、強調手段9が、コントラストが所定の閾値以下のときに境界エッジを強調することを特徴とする。 【選択図】図1
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a display device that makes a driver to easily recognize a boundary between an own vehicle and a peripheral region in a picked up image so as to prevent collision with a nearby obstacle.SOLUTION: A display device of the present invention includes: own vehicle region extracting means 6 for extracting an own vehicle region from an image of an own vehicle and its surroundings picked up by imaging means 1; boundary edge extracting means 7 for extracting a boundary edge between the own vehicle region and a peripheral region of the own vehicle from the picked up image of the own vehicle and its surroundings; contrast extracting means 8 for extracting contrast of the own vehicle region; highlight means 9 for highlighting the boundary edge; and display means 3 for displaying the picked up image of the own vehicle and its surroundings including the boundary edge highlighted by the highlight means 9. The highlight means 9 highlights the boundary edge when the contrast is equal to or less than a given threshold value.
