Abstract. In this paper, a method for inferring scene structure
information based on both laser and visual data is proposed.
Common laser scanners employed in contemporary robotic
systems provide accurate range measurements, but only in 2D
slices of the environment. On the other hand, vision is capable
of providing dense 3D information of the environment. The
proposed fusion scheme combines the accuracy of laser sen-
