Efficient LiDAR data compression for embedded V2I or V2V data handling

11 Apr 2019  ·  Caillet Paul, Dupuis Yohan ·

LiDAR are increasingly being used in intelligent vehicles (IV) or intelligent transportation systems (ITS). Storage and transmission of data generated by LiDAR sensors are one of the most challenging aspects of their deployment... In this paper we present a method that can be used to efficiently compress LiDAR data in order to facilitate storage and transmission in V2V or V2I applications. This method can be used to perform lossless or lossy compression and is specifically designed for embedded applications with low processing power. This method is also designed to be easily applicable to existing processing chains by keeping the structure of the data stream intact. We benchmarked our method using several publicly available datasets and compared it with state-of-the-art LiDAR data compression methods from the literature. read more
