Abstract
This research aims to develop a sensor system, which is able to detect moving objects from a moving platform. Especially, we are focusing to achieve it using a car as a platform in city area environments. Toward this problem, we employed an omni-directional camera, vehicle odometry and a simple range sensor. In this paper, we explain our approach and setup of a platform and sensors, and briefly show a preliminary experimental result.
