Urban scene understanding is the ability to categorize ambient objects into several classes and it plays an important role in various urban robotic missions, such as surveillance, rescue, and SLAM. In spite of many previous works in urban scene understanding, it is still hard to apply it to urban robotic missions because point clouds scanned in urban environments are complex and massive. In this thesis, we address the difficulties and propose urban scene understanding algorithms which solve the difficulties. To achieve this, the proposed algorithms in this thesis were designed based on Gaussian distribu-tions. Gaussian distribution is a useful tool to simply represent point clouds in terms of mean and covari-ance, instead of directly dealing with complex and massive point clouds. By doing so, we tried to derive useful properties for robotics applications from Gaussian distributions. In this thesis, we propose two kinds of urban scene understanding algorithms based on Gaussian distributions. The two proposed algorithms have respective advantages for robotic applications. For the first algorithm, we propose an urban scene understanding algorithms based on Normal Dis-tribution Transform (NDT) grids for robots. In 3D NDT grids, point clouds are stored in the form of mean and covariance. The advantage of using 3D NDT grids is that massive 3D point clouds can be represented by simple the parameters in 3D grids, i.e mean and covariance. Moreover, NDT grids support incremental update of point clouds without increasing memory size. This strength is useful for storing dense or huge amounts of point clouds. Based on NDT grids, we design Geometric-Featured Voxel (GFV) to represent urban structures as a voxel model. The proposed method consists of three steps: GFV generation, segmentation, and classification. Experimental results prove that the proposed method is suitable for robotic applications in terms of memory requirement, computation time, and even classification acc...
