Abstract or Description
We present a novel method for obstacle detection for automated highway environments. Laser range scanners have frequently been used for obstacle detection for mobile robots. Although most laser scanners provide intensity information in addition to range, laser intensity has been ignored by most researchers. We show that laser intensity, on its own, is sufficient (and better) for detecting obstacles at long ranges in mild terrain such as an automated highway.
