Design of an information fusion for semantic segmentation of LiDAR point clouds in an urban context.
Platooning describes the automated driving of vehicles in a convoy, whereby the vehicles are networked with each other and observe the environment with the help of sensors. An important aspect in the process chain is the acquisition and processing of environmental data. LiDAR sensors generate three-dimensional point clouds of objects in the vehicle's environment. This data can be used, for example, to determine position or detect obstacles. An important step in the processing of LiDAR point cloud data is segmentation. This involves dividing the points in the point cloud into objects (for example, roads, buildings, vehicles) to enable better interpretation of the data.
In addition to LiDAR sensors, modern vehicles have other sensors such as RGB cameras, RADAR sensors or GPS sensors. These represent a source of information and can be considered by information fusion techniques for semantic segmentation.
