Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: To improve the detecting ability on the felling target tree of forest harvester, a simple sensor system have been employed in the present paper, and to make the data obtained from laser scanner and camera can be merged into a new image several methods have been employed by researchers. However these methods usually standardized the image for fusion which takes lots of resources. In the present paper, a simple but useful method has been used to make this fusion process much more economize At last, as the experiment results show that, with the adaptive calculation on the number of pixels in the segmentation grids, the pixel level fusion effect was good enough for detecting the felling target.


Keywords: data fusion, laser scanner, adaptive round algorithm, pixel fusion
