Objective evaluation of scanning ladar configurations for mobile robots
2009 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems
Scanning laser range sensors (ladars) are frequently used in mobile robotics applications because their ability to accurately measure the environment in 3D makes them well-suited for perception tasks like terrain modeling and obstacle detection. The choice of ladar sensor and the manner in which it is configured and integrated into a robot platform is usually determined subjectively based on the experience of the project team members. This paper develops a method for evaluating ladar sensorsdoi:10.1109/iros.2009.5354359 dblp:conf/iros/KovacSZF09a fatcat:2bir7i6zmbao7lbr5kmn4wwujm
