Within this project a novel approach in the field of scene understanding for mobile robots in urban outdoor scenarios based on fused 3D information from several sensors (lidar, color camera, time of flight camera, thermal ones) is investigated. The 3D perception is essential in real life application for autonomous robots such as the ones used in search and rescue activities, surveillance, guidance etc.
For the theoretical investigations and implementation of the proposed method an important aspect is the experimental validation of the proposed approach on a real robot (iRobot Packbot) in an outdoor environment such as the participation at ELROB 2014 in Warsaw, Poland.
