The characterization in real-time of the drivable space in front of the vehicle is a key issue for safe autonomous navigation or driving assistance. This paper presents a method that uses a lidar (a multilayer laser scanner) integrated in the front bumper of an automotive vehicle. A grid processing is first applied to detect and localize objects in the immediate environment after having compensated the movement of the vehicle. Accurate map information is then introduced in the perception scheme to refine the characterization of the drivable space. The paper details the different processing stages necessary to implement this method and presents the design of the system that has been prototyped on board an experimental vehicle. We report real experiments carried out in challenging urban environments to illustrate the performance of this approach which has been evaluated thanks to a precise retro-projection of the estimated drivable space in a wide-angle scene camera
