    Abstract

    The purpose of this research is development of vision-based object detection algorithm that recognizes a marine object, localizes the object on captured frames, and estimates the distance to the object. Faster R-CNN and stereo vision based depth estimation are combined for real-time marine object detection. The performance of this algorithm is verified by model ship detection test in towing tank. The test results showed that this algorithm is potentially applicable to real USV.
