Issues in obstacle detection for autonomous mining and construction vehicles
Roberts, Jonathan M., Winstanley, Graeme J., & Corke, Peter I. (1999) Issues in obstacle detection for autonomous mining and construction vehicles. In Proceedings of the 16th IAARC/IFAC/IEEE International Symposium on Automation and Robotics in Construction, International Association for Automation and Robotics in Construction (IAARC), Madrid, Spain, pp. 397-402.
This paper discusses a Dumber of key issues for the development of robust, obstacle detection systems for autonomous mining and construction vehicles. A taxonomy of obstacle detection systems is described; An overview of the state-of- the-art in obstacle detection for outdoor autonomous vehicles is presented with their applicability to the mining and construction environments noted. The issue of so-called fail-safe obstacle detection is then discussed. Finally, we describe the development of an obstacle detection system for a mining vehicle.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
