Extraction of Urban Power Lines from Vehicle-Borne LiDAR Data
AbstractAirborne LiDAR has been traditionally used for power line cruising. Nevertheless, data acquisition with airborne LiDAR is constrained by the complex environments in urban areas as well as the multiple parallel line structures on the same power line tower, which means it is not directly applicable to the extraction of urban power lines. Vehicle-borne LiDAR system has its advantages upon airborne LiDAR and this paper tries to utilize vehicle-borne LiDAR data for the extraction of urban power lines. First, power line points are extracted using a voxel-based hierarchical method in which geometric features of each voxel are calculated. Then, a bottom-up method for filtering the power lines belonging to each power line is proposed. The initial clustering and clustering recovery procedures are conducted iteratively to identify each power line. The final experiment demonstrates the high precision of this technique. View Full-Text
