In this paper, a method for inferring 3D structure infor-
mation based on both range and visual data is proposed.
Data fusion is achieved by validating assumptions formed
according to 2D range scans of the environment, through
the exploitation of visual information. The proposed method
is readily applicable to robot navigation tasks providing
significant advantages over existing methods.
