Abstract

An improved processing approach based on the relation between range accuracy and slicing number is proposed to improve the range accuracy of range-gating laser radar. The sequence of time-slice images is segmented according to their optimal slicing number and processed in segments to achieve the range information of objects. Experimental results indicate that the slicing number has a significant impact on range accuracy, and the highest range accuracy can be achieved when the systems work with an optimal slicing number.
