  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Virtual Generation of Lidar Data for Autonomous Vehicles

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Rickard Jonathan Laurenius MartinJansson TobiasChemander SherryAlldén Davar; Philip Tibom; [2017-08-10]
    Keywords : lidar; autonomous vehicles; simulation.;

    Abstract : The area of autonomous vehicles is a growing field of research which has gainedpopularity in the later years. Companies such as Tesla and Volvo continuously workon creating vehicles that can autonomously navigate traffic with the use of differentsensors and algorithms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Local short path generation for autonomous commercial vehicles

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad mekanik

    Author : Viktor Hellaeus; Yaowen Xu; [2017]
    Keywords : neural network; autonomous vehicles; short path generation; decision making; end-to-end learning;

    Abstract : In recent years, breakthroughs in artificial intelligence (AI) have drawn the attention to the subject frommany fields including the automotive industry, where it could become a cornerstone in order to developfully autonomous vehicles. In the automotive industry the applications for these AI-techniques varies fromclassification of a vehicle's surroundings to behavioral-reex approaches that mimics human behaviour. READ MORE
