Terrain Segmentation using Laser Radar Range Data
1992 (English)In: Applied Optics, ISSN 0003-6935, Vol. 31, no 15, 2883-2890 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A novel approach to segmentation of laser radar range images is presented. The approach is based on modeling horizontal and vertical scans of the terrain as piecewise-constant or piecewise-linear functions. The approach uses adaptive estimation based on Kalman filtering techniques. The performance of the segmentation algorithm is evaluated by application to laser range measurements. We also discuss how the output from the segmentation algorithm can be used for, e.g., object detection.
