Abstract

This paper describes the detection of moving obstacles using laser radar in road environments. This application is designed to be implemented in further research on data fusion technologies. The developed application uses only a laser radar which provides information to sort objects according to their shape and movement. The subsequent detection and classification provide higher level tracking.
