The interpretation of phase and intensity data from AMCW light detection sensors for reliable ranging

Abstract:

The analysis of sensor range data and its application to mobile robot navigation are of crucial importance in the field of mobile robotic research. We analyze the range data produced by an amplitude-modulated continuous wave (AMCW) light detection and ranging sensor and show that by physically modeling such sensors, we not only can produce reliable range estimates, but can also quantify our certainty in each range data point. We discuss the noise in the sensor and show the importance of using...
