Investigation of Lidar Data for Autonomous Driving with an Electric Bus

ATZ electronics worldwide 03I2019

Electric mobility and automated driving are merging together. Bertrandt investigates the measurement data of a laser scanner (lidar technology), which recorded the environment of an electric city bus 4-km route through Regensburg (Germany). On the basis of these data, two methods of object detection and classification were examined. One of the challenges was the low vertical resolution compared to the frequently used 32 to 128 lines.
