The difficulty of lane detection lies in the imbalance of the number of target pixels and background pixels. The sparse target distribution misleads the neural network to pay more attention to background segmentation in order to obtain a better loss convergence result. This makes it difficult for some models to detect lane line pixels and leads to the training fail (unable to output useful lane information). Increasing receptive field properly can enlarge the sphere of action between pixels, so

Moreover, the interference information and noise existing in the real environment increase the difficulty of lane classification, such as vehicle occlusion, car glass reflection, and tree shadow. In this paper, we do think that the features obtained by the reasonable combination of receptive fields can help avoid oversegmentation of the image, so that most of the interference information can be filtered out. Based on this idea, Adaptive Receptive Field Net (ARFNet) is proposed to solve the problem of receptive field combination with the help of multireceptive field aggregation layers and scoring mechanism. This paper explains the working principle of ARFNet and analyzes several results of experiments, which are carried out to adjust network structure parameters in order to get better effects in the CuLane dataset testing.
