Paper Abstract

In this paper we explore image fusion methods for 3D LIDAR sensors, thermal sensors, and visible color sensors. Traditional display methods are demonstrated in contrast to the proposed robust representations. The new fused representations make full use of the display gamut of a color monitor. In addition, a data transformation on 3D LIDAR points is demonstrated which ports hard sensor data into information space. The LIDAR data is classified and clustered in a hierarchical fashion, which allows temporal and spatial coherent fusion with soft sensor data.
