A design of an optical sensor for modeling a large object of metal is described. The sensor is based on a time of flight scanning range finder. A raw 512 times 512 range image created by the sensor is compressed into a form suitable for robot path planning. The scene analysis is realized by a dynamic split and merge method. Preliminary results of the early stages of the design are presented.-Authors
