This paper introduces a new approach to recognize the position of a UGV -Unmanned Ground Vehicleutilizing a Digital Surface Map (DSM) along with forward direction three dimensional (3D) distance sensors and cameras. The proposed method consists of a P2P-based (Perspective 2-Point) pairwise registration, and an TCP refinement registration that implements the DSM. A new cost function, which utilizes simultaneously acquired forward direction 3D distance data and DSM information, is also introduced when proposing…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
