Obstacles in the sidewalk can often block the passage and prevent pedestrians from completing their daily tasks in adequate time and effort. Furthermore, the city registries are outdated or manually added, so there is no way to inform citizens about the best routes to follow and help city officials to have an overall image of sidewalk accessibility to improve it. The purpose of this paper is to suggest an automatic and scalable way to measure sidewalk obstacle-free width using point clouds.
