Abstract or Table of Contents

In this paper, we propose an approach that enables automatic, fast and accurate tree trunks segmentation from three-dimensional (3-D) laser data. Results have been demonstrated in real-time on-board a ground mobile robot. In addition, we propose an approach to estimate tree diameter at breast height (dbh) that was tested off-line on a variety of ground laser scanner data. Results are also presented for detection of tree trunks in aerial laser data. The underlying techniques using in all cases rely on 3-D geometry analysis of point clouds and geometric primitives fitting.
