Most existing Global Positioning System (GPS)-based vehicle navigation systems (also termed route guidance systems) utilize distance within their turn-by-turn navigation directions. For example, a system might give a voice instruction such as \turn left in 0.2 mile". However, human drivers usually use landmarks to help their navigation. Some previous research has shown that there are performance-related benefits in using landmarks instead of distance for navigation. The goal of this thesis work is to develop a landmark-based navigation system in next generation cars using computer vision techniques. We also provide an interactive platform based on hand gestures to intuitively interact with the landmark-based navigation system.
