Paper Abstract

This paper studies range images of man-made objects in outdoor environments. Our objective is to give the description of terrain, separate man-made objects from background and localize it. With the aim of this, a slope surface fitting method is proposed and applied to homogeneous dense high images derived from the range images, then a terrain description is constructed and the object detection algorithm is proposed. The final results show that our method works effectively.
