Obstacle Detection for a Mining Vehicle using a 2 D Laser

  title={Obstacle Detection for a Mining Vehicle using a 2 D Laser},
  author={Jonathan Roberts and Peter I. Corke Peter. I. Corke},
This paper discusses a number of key issues for the development of robust obstacle detection systems for autonomous mining vehicles. Strategies for obstacle detection are described and an overview of the state-of-the-art in obstacle detection for outdoor autonomous vehicles using lasers is presented, with their applicability to the mining environment noted. The development of an obstacle detection system for a mining vehicle is then detailed. This system uses a 2D laser scanner as the prime… CONTINUE READING
