Sequential Fusion for 3D Pedestrian Detection using LiDAR Point Cloud and Semantic Segmentation

3D pedestrian detection is one of the most difficult tasks in autonomous driving. It typically uses two data acquisition sources: LiDAR and camera. Combining these two sensors should be beneficial; however, improper fusion methods lead to worse results than LiDAR-only detection. A recent paper on arXiv.org proposes a method that is able to apply fusion […]
