Paper Abstract

Experimental results for the detection of the navigable space surrounding a mobile vehicle using a compact optical 3-D range sensor are presented. A first prototype of the optical sensor, which is based on the use of a double aperture mask in place of the diaphragm of a standard camera lens to acquire panoramic images of a room, is shown. Preliminary experiments concerning the integration of multiple acquisitions and creation of a map of the immediate free space environment around the vehicle, when the sensor is used in an exploratory mode, are presented.
