Paper Abstract

For the vision system of an autonomous land vehicle (ALV), the primary task is to provide a description of the world rich enough to facilitate such behaviors as road-following and obstacle avoidance, etc. In this paper, a new approach based on the pyramid data structure (PDS) is proposed for describing the environment of the world. On the basis of PDS, color image and range image are projected into a kind of grid map. Finally, we developed a method using the idea of data fusion of get a final description of the terrain.
