In this paper we propose a vehicle detection framework on low resolution aerial range data. Our system consists of three steps: data mapping, 2D vehicle detection and postprocessing. First, we map the range data into 2D grayscale images by using the depth information only. For this purpose we propose a novel local ground plane estimation method, and the estimated ground plane is further refined by a global refinement process. Then we compute the depth value of missing points (points for which… CONTINUE READING
