Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DETECTING OBSTACLES
Abstract:
A method and apparatus for detecting obstacles, which relate to the technical field of artificial intelligence. The present invention aims to solve the problem in the existing technology wherein accuracy in detecting obstacles is limited. Said method for detecting obstacles comprises: acquiring a pixel image and a depth image respectively, which correspond to an area to be detected (101); determining a road surface area within the area to be detected and a first class obstacle within the road surface area according to the pixel classification of each pixel within the pixel image; and determining a second class obstacle within the area to be detected according to the depth image (102); determining a spatial location of the first class obstacle according to the pixel image and the depth image respectively, and determining a spatial location of the second class obstacle according to the depth image (103). Said method is applicable in a process of detecting obstacles.
