In recent times, many innocent people are suffering from sudden death for the sake of unwanted road accidents, which also riveting a lot of financial properties. The researchers have deployed advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in which a large number of automated features have been incorporated in the modern vehicles to overcome human mortality as well as financial loss, and lane markings detection is one of them. Many computer vision techniques and intricate image processing approaches have been used for detecting the lane markings by utilizing the handcrafted with highly specialized features. However, the systems have become more challenging due to the computational complexity, overfitting, less accuracy, and incapability to cope up with the intricate environmental conditions. Therefore, this research paper proposed a simple encode-decode deep learning model to detect lane markings under the distinct environmental condition with lower computational complexity. The model is based on SegNet architecture for improving the performance of the existing researches, which is trained by the lane marking dataset containing different complex environment conditions like rain, cloud, low light, curve roads. The model has successfully achieved 96.38% accuracy, 0.0311 false positive, 0.0201 false negative, 0.960 F1 score with a loss of only 1.45%, less overfitting and 428 ms per step that outstripped some of the existing researches. It is expected that this research will bring a significant contribution to the field lane marking detection.
