Our goal is to automatically classify objects from Mobile Mapping System data to enable the automatic construction of dynamic maps. We aimed at the extraction of curbstones and classification of curb types. Although there is much research about curbstones being recognized from laser-scanned point clouds, there are few methods to classify curb types. In this paper, we propose a method to extract curbstones from low-density-type laser scan data. We also propose a method to distinguish whether curbstones allow access to off-road facilities. Evaluation tests give an F-measure of ≥94.4% and an accessibility classification accuracy of ≥99.6%. Moreover, the results of applying multiple filters to noise removal are compared.
