Fascinating stuff. I'll keep driving myself for now, especially on crappy Colorado roads with faded white lines... Sometimes when it rains the humans can't tell where the lanes are. Then there's snow...

But anyway, those are inspiring videos. Would love to figure out something like this, some day. Will need something more powerful than my Gameboy camera and Arduino... :)

The vanishing point is infinity where parallel lines intersect.

It is useful for using inverse perspective mapping to produce a birds eye view.
