This paper examines the use of range sensors in collision avoidance systems. It describes an approach for obstacle detection and tracking in which detection is performed by checking the traversability of the environment in the sensor's field of view. The tracking scheme can handle problems such as occlusion, new appearance or disappearance of scene objects.
