Lane detection is an essential feature for developing intelligent transportation systems that can prevent road accidents due to undetected lane changes. The study will propose a method for reducing road accidents by using computer vision robotics to detect lanes for self-driving cars. The comprehensive aim of the research is to determine one such intelligent transportation system that can use focus-based instance segmentation for detecting lanes and improving autonomous vehicle transportation. This research proposes a technique for detecting traffic lanes using focus-based instance segmentation for vehicle detection on the road and highlighting lanes with drivable space. The proposed network uses a loss-trained hourglass model. Additionally, this model is trained multiple times using the same loss function to achieve competitive accuracy and a high proportion of false-positive results. The information comes from the German Traffic Sign Detection Benchmark (GTSDB), which is public data.
