Abstract

This paper presents a novel sonar sensor consisting of three transmitters and three receivers that can localise and classify 3D targets into 16 different naturally occurring indoor classes. The sensor produces submillimeter range and sub-degree bearing accuracies using an optimal matched filter time of flight estimator up to a range of 6 meters. The sensor configuration, hardware and processing are described. Experimental results from the sensor are presented.
