Abstract
This paper reports progress in range image analysis for autonomous navigation in outdoor environments. The goal of our work is to use range data from an ERIM laser range finder to build a three-dimensional description of the environment. We describe techniques for building both low-level description. such as obstacle maps or terrain maps, as well as higher level description using model-based object recognilion. We have integrated these techniques in the NAVLAB system.
