Segmentation and Detection Using Deep Learning

Semantic segmentation and object detection in point cloud data using deep learning algorithms

Semantic segmentation associates each point in a 3-D point cloud with a class label, such as car, truck, ground, or vegetation. Lidar Toolbox™ provides deep learning algorithms to perform semantic segmentation on point cloud data. Use PointSeg and SqueezeSegV2 convolutional neural networks (CNN) to develop semantic segmentation models.

Lidar Toolbox also provides the object detection CNN PointPillars for developing custom object detection models.
