Detection of Road Boundaries and Obstacles Using LIDAR

Abstract—This paper proposes a novel approach to detecting road boundaries and obstacles for robust urban navigation of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). In this method, a 2-D Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) sensor mounted at a given pitch angle is used to extract the road surface. The information obtained about the road is evaluated by filters … Read more

Approaches of Road Boundary and Obstacle Detection Using LIDAR

This paper introduces an overview of the studies of two problems; (1) road boundary detection and (2) obstacle detection, in order to allow the movement of autonomous vehicles. Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is the most used technology for solving these two problems. It is thoroughly described with its operating mechanism and its use in … Read more
