Motivated by two potential applications, i.e. enhancing driving safety and traffic data collection, a system has been developed using a single-layer horizontal laser scanner as the major sensor for both localization and perception of the surroundings in a large dynamic urban environment. This research focuses on a classification method, that given a stream of laser measurements, classify the moving object into either a person, a group of people, a bicycle or a car. In this research, a number of

Experimental results are presented, demonstrating that the algorithm has efficiency with respect to both driving safety and traffic data collection in highly dynamic environment.
