A novel data processing technique is provided for detecting, locating and identifying targets from a plurality of images generated by an imaging sensor such as an imaging lidar system. The present invention employs physical models of signals produced by target objects of interest. Such a model based detection system globally processes frames of data to determine the existence and location of component elements that characterize the target being modeled.
A method for processing imaging data gathered by an imaging sensor to detect the presence or absence of a target, the imaging sensor including pulsed light source means and gated camera means, the method comprising the steps of: converting imaging data received by said gated camera means into an array of pixels “n”; determining physical parameters related to environmental conditions and imaging sensor location and orientation; inputting said physical parameters into a hypothetical physical and optical model and calculating the hypothetical distribution o...
