This paper describes a practical approach for environment perception using fusion of active ranging with a low-power laser and passive, stereo based ranging. A low-cost, coarse pitch linear detector is used, but still sufficient distance accuracy for mobile robotics is achieved by using a new method of sub-pixel calibration. The device is intended for mobile robot or vehicle perception duties in obstacle detection and target position measurement.
