Smart vehicle is an rapidly increasing field. The ultimate goal is to develop the ability for our cars to travel without human control. As a result, the necessity of applying sensing system becomes more and more important. Laser range finder is a kind of sensor which can provide real-time and accurate distance information. In this dissertation, a single laser range finder is used to scan the surroundings. These data are processed to produce the detection result. Main objective of the work is to distinguish grass and non-grass and reflect the result in RVIZ. The main algorithm is to do segmentation first, then use the points of each segment to fit a line, and finally, calculate the covariance and compare the covariance to a threshold.
