Lidar Processing for Automated Driving


The use of lidar as a sensor for perception in Level 3 and Level 4 automated driving functionality is gaining popularity. MATLAB® and Simulink® can acquire and process lidar data for algorithm development for automated driving functions such as free space and obstacle detection. With the point-cloud processing functionality in MATLAB, you can develop algorithms for lidar processing, and visualize intermediate results to gain insight into system behavior.

This talk shows new capabilities including:

  • Acquiring live and offline data from Velodyne® sensors 
  • Registering lidar point clouds 
  • Segmenting objects and detecting obstacles 
  • Applying deep learning to lidar data 
  • Generating C/C++ and CUDA® code from lidar processing algorithms
