Three-dimensional perception is a key technology for many robotics applications, including obstacle detection, mapping, and localization. There exist a number of sensors and techniques for acquiring 3-D data, many of which have particular utility for various robotic tasks. We introduce a new design for a 3-D sensor system, constructed from a 2-D range scanner coupled with a passive linkage mechanism, such as a spring. By mounting the other end of the passive linkage mechanism to a moving body… CONTINUE READING
