The laser bar detector searches for retro-reflective targets in the laser range finder data. Targets can be either planar or cylindrical, as shown below. For planar targets, the range, bearing and orientation will be determined; for cylindrical targets, only the range and bearing will be determined. The target size and shape can be set in the configuration file.|
The range at which targets can be detected is dependant on the target size, the angular resolution of the laser and the quality of the retro-reflective material used on the target.
