Modeling of a Low Cost Laser Scanner Sensor Book Conference Paper uri icon


  • A laser scanner is a popular sensor widely used in industry and mobile robots applications that measures the distance to the sensor on a slice of the plan. This sensor can be used in mobile robots localization task. In this paper, a low cost laser scanner sensor is modelled so that it can be implemented in a simulation environment. The simulation reflects the laser model properties such as target colour dependences, noise, limits and time constraints. A correction of the laser scanner nonlinearities is proposed. The noise spectrum is also addressed.
