VEHICLE TRACKING WITH A LASER SCANNER

In this paper, the authors describe a vehicle tracking system for automatic cruise control (ACC) applications. The system uses a laser scanner that is mounted on a vehicle as the sensor. The scanner delivers range data of a horizontal plane up to a maximum range of 100 meters in front of the vehicle. A tracking algorithm is used for computing the position, speed, and acceleration of all vehicles in the detection area. The tracking system uses Kalman-Filtering with a kinematic model of the vehicles, and runs on common PC hardware in real time. Results from test drives reveal the real time performance and accuracy of the system.
