Abstract
This paper describes the use of computer graphics modeling to simulate laser range and reflectance images. Applications of image processing techniques to computer-generated (C-G) laser images are described and advantages of this system over a physical device are discussed. An example is presented in which laser imaging algorithms are developed and applied to robotic navigation.
