driving.scenario.bicycleMesh

Mesh representation of bicycle in driving scenario

Description

example

mesh = driving.scenario.bicycleMesh creates a mesh representation of a bicycle as an extendedObjectMesh object, mesh.

Examples

collapse all

Add a prebuilt bicycle mesh to a driving scenario. Then, use a lidarPointCloudGenerator System object™ to generate a point cloud of the bicycle mesh.

Create and show the prebuilt bicycle mesh.

mesh = driving.scenario.bicycleMesh;
egoMesh = driving.scenario.carMesh;
figure
show(mesh)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains an object of type patch.

ans = 
  Axes with properties:

             XLim: [-0.5000 0.5000]
             YLim: [-0.2000 0.2000]
           XScale: 'linear'
           YScale: 'linear'
    GridLineStyle: '-'
         Position: [0.1300 0.1100 0.7750 0.8150]
            Units: 'normalized'

Create a driving scenario.

s = drivingScenario;

Add a straight road to the driving scenario. The road has one lane traveling in each direction.

road(s,[0 0 0; 30 0 0],'Lanes',lanespec([1 1]));

Add a car as an ego vehicle and a bicycle as a non-ego actor.

egoVehicle = vehicle(s,'ClassID',1,'Mesh',egoMesh);
bicycle = vehicle(s,'Position',[15 2 0],'Yaw',180,'ClassID',3,'Mesh',mesh);
smoothTrajectory(egoVehicle,[1 -2 0; 21.3 -2 0],20);

Plot the driving scenario. Set name-value pair 'Meshes','on' to show the meshes of the actors in the plot.

figure;
plot(s,'Meshes','on');

Create a lidarPointCloudGenerator System object. Set the actor profiles of the System object to those in the driving scenario.

lidar = lidarPointCloudGenerator;
lidar.ActorProfiles = actorProfiles(s);

Generate a lidar point cloud of the driving scenario.

player = pcplayer([-20 20],[-10 10],[0 4]);
while advance(s)
 tgts = targetPoses(egoVehicle);
 rdmesh = roadMesh(egoVehicle);
 [ptCloud,isValidTime] = lidar(tgts,rdmesh,s.SimulationTime);
    if isValidTime
    view(player,ptCloud);
    end
end

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 5 objects of type patch, line.

Figure Point Cloud Player contains an axes object. The axes object contains an object of type scatter.

Mesh representation of bicycle, returned as an extendedObjectMesh object. The origin of the mesh is located at its geometric center.

You can develop your own meshes by using this prebuilt bicycle mesh as a starting point. At the MATLAB® command line, enter:
