  1. 1. Semantic Stixels fusing LIDAR for Scene Perception

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Olof Forsberg; [2018]
    Keywords : Stixels; Perception; Scene Perception; Autonomous driving; AD; LIDAR; Semantic Segmentation; Scene model; Real time; Dynamic Programing;

    Abstract : Autonomous driving is the concept of a vehicle that operates in traffic without instructions from a driver. A major challenge for such a system is to provide a comprehensive, accurate and compact scene model based on information from sensors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Autonomous model car : Construction and development for evaluation of indoor positioning system

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Signaler och System

    Author : Svensson Martin; [2018]
    Keywords : autonomous; model; car; positioning system; UWB; LIDAR;

    Abstract : This thesis work aims for the development of an autonomous model car to evaluate an indoor Ultra-wideband (UWB) positioning system and for the investigation of integrating a Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) sensor to the final system. The goal to be achieved is that the model car should be able to receive a travel plan specified by the user, run autonomously along the plan by receiving the continuously updated position and stop in front of obstacles.

  3. 3. Unbiasing entomological kHz Scheimpflug LIDAR data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik

    Author : Alexandra Andersson; [2018]
    Keywords : Entomological LIDAR; Insect detection; Wing-beat frequency; Unbiasing of analysis model; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Insects can be mapped using a method called Scheimpflug Lidar (LIght Detection And Ranging). Sending out light in the near infrared range and detecting the backscattered echo, it is possible to resolve flying organisms in range and time. Insect observations can be distinguished from the background signal through adaptive thresholding. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inundation scenarios in a changing climate : assessing potential impacts of sea-level rise on the coast of South-East England

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Adela Nistora; [2018]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Climate Change; Climate Change Impacts; Sea-Level Rise; Coastal Inundation; LiDAR; South-East England; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to explore sea-level rise (SLR) exposure in South-East England by conducting a broad analysis of some of the possible impacts of inundation in the region under different SLR scenarios in a warming climate. The potential effects of coastal inundation were mapped and quantified by applying a modified bathtub modelling approach in GIS to a low-elevation coastal Digital Terrain Model (DTM) derived from up-to-date, high-resolution, high-accuracy LiDAR data.

  5. 5. Combining dense short range sensors and sparse long range sensors for mapping

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Ismael Lin; [2018]
    Keywords : 3D Mapping; Kinect sensor; LiDAR; SLAM;

    Abstract : Mapping is one of the main components of autonomous robots, and consist in the construction of a model of their environment based on the information gathered by different sensors over time. Those maps will have different attributes depending on the type of sensor used for the reconstruction. In this thesis we focus on RGBD cameras and LiDARs. READ MORE
