A feature detection system has been developed for real-time identification of lines, circles and people legs from laser range data. A new method suitable for arc/circle detection is proposed: the Inscribed Angle Variance (IAV). Lines are detected using a recursive line fitting method. The people leg detection is based on geometrical relations. The system was implemented as a plugin driver in Player, a mobile robot server. Real results are presented to verify the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms in indoor environment with moving objects.
