Fusing LIDAR and Vision for Autonomous Dirt Road Following - Incorporating a Visual Feature into the Tentacles Approach
TLDR
In this paper we describe how visual features can be incorporated into the well known tentacles approach which up to now has only used LIDAR and GPS data and was therefore limited to scenarios with significant obstacles. Expand
