Abstract

Profile information about a three-dimensional target can be obtained directly by analyzing two-dimensional data of the pulse laser range profile (LRP). The profile, shape, and posture of the target can be detected using LRPs. An analytical LRP model from rough convex quadric bodies of revolution is presented. This model can be used to analyze the effects of geometric parameters, surface material, and orientation on LRPs. The numerical results of the effects on LRPs of four typical targets are given. Based on the results of the simulated model and theoretical analysis, the rough convex quadric bodies of revolution can be identified. The analytical expressions of this model are significant in the application of LiDAR imaging.
