Abstract
This report describes software developed for the tracking of vehicles and pedestrians using scanning laser rangefinders mounted on a moving vehicle. Although the system combines various algorithms and empirical decision rules to achieve acceptable performance, the basic mechanism is tracking of line features, so we call this approach linear feature tracking.
