Approaches to Pole Detection using Ranged Laser Data

  title={Approaches to Pole Detection using Ranged Laser Data},
  author={Shaun Press and David Austin},
In building up maps for mobile robot navigation the detection of clearly identifiable landmarks is important. Also important is the confidence level that recognised landmarks are really what we identify them as. This paper looks at using laser range sensing to both identify poles and to attach a probability to poles observed. Adapting the standard method of circle detection using Hough Tables a new approach to assigning probabilities to features is proposed. These probabilities are assigned… CONTINUE READING
