Abstract:

We shall study the problem of object identification against a background of clutter and using laser radar for obtaining range data. The algorithm shall attempt to classify the object or objects in the scene. It may also be able to do the detection but this is not the primary goal since, in a multiple sensor situation, this may be better done by other sensors. The algorithms shall be flexible so that they can easily be modified to incorporate changes in technology as long as range data are supplied. In particular, if the accuracy of the range determinations improves drastically, only minor changes will be needed in the code. To make this possible the code is made highly modular, so that only one, or a few, of the smaller modules need be replaced by other modules also supplied in addition, of course, to changing parameter values.
