Obstacle avoidance and navigation in the real world by a seeing robot rover by Hans P Moravec ( Book )
8 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Stanford AI Lab cart is a card-table sized mobile robot controlled remotely through a radio link, and equipped with a TV camera and transmitter. A computer has been programmed to drive the cart through cluttered indoor and outdoor spaces, gaining its knowledge of the world entirely from images broadcast by the onboard TV system. The cart uses several kinds of stereo to locate objects around it in 3D and to deduce its own motion. It plans an obstacle avoiding path to a desired destination on the basis of a model built with this information. The plan changes as the cart perceives new obstacles on its journey. The system is reliable for short runs, but slow. The cart moves one meter every ten to fifteen minutes, in lurches. After rolling a meter it stops, takes some pictures and thinks about them for a long time. Then it plans a new path, executes a little of it, and pauses again. The program has successfully driven the cart through several 20 meter indoor courses (each taking about five hours) complex enough to necessitate three or four avoiding swerves. A less successful outdoor run, in which the cart skirted two obstacles but collided with a third, was also done. Harsh lighting (very bright surfaces next to very dark shadows) giving poor pictures and movement of shadows during the cart's creeping progress were major reasons for the poorer outdoor performance. The action portions of these runs were filmed by computer controlled cameras. (Author)

Robot evidence grids by Martin C Martin ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The evidence grid representation was formulated at the CMU Mobile Robot Laboratory in 1983 to turn wide angle range measurements from cheap mobile robot-mounted sonar sensors into detailed spatial maps. It accumulates diffuse evidence about the occupancy of a grid of small volumes of nearby space from individual sensor readings into increasingly confident and detailed maps of a robot's surroundings. It worked suprisingly well in first implementation for sonar navigation in cluttered rooms. In the past decade its use has been extended to range measurements from stereoscopic vision and other sensors, sonar in very difficult specular environments, and other contexts. The most dramatic extension yet, from 2D grid maps with thousands of cells to 3D grids with millions, is underway. This paper presents the mathematical and probabilistic framework we now use for evidence grids. It gives the history of the grid representation, and its relation to other spatial modeling approaches. It discusses earlier formulations and their limitations, and documents several extensions. A list of open issues and research topics is then presented, followed by a literature survey."

New destinies : the paperback magazine of science fiction and speculative fact ( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A magazine in paperback book format edited by James Baen. Jim Baen established his own publishing company in 1983. Using the same format as Destinies, which he edited while working at Ace Books, he published seven issues of Far Frontiers, with Jerry Pournelle as co-editor, in 1985 and 1986. As solo editor, he resurected Destinies as New Destinies. Eight issues were published from 1987 to 1990
The CMU Rover ( Book )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
An advanced camera-equipped mobile robot is being built at the CMU Robotics Institute to support research in control, perception, planning and related issues. It will be used initially to continue and extend visual navigation work (the Cart Project) completed in 1981 at Stanford's AI Lab, but is designed with mechanical, sensor and controller flexibility which should permit it to support a wide variety of other efforts
The Stanford Cart and the CMU Rover ( Book )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Stanford Cart was a remotely controlled TV equipped mobile robot. A computer program was written which drove the Cart through cluttered spaces, gaining its knowledge of the world entirely from images broadcast by an onboard TV system. The CMU Rover is a more capable, and nearly operational, robot being built to develop and extend the Stanford work and to explore new directions. The Cart used several kinds of stereopsis to locate objects around it in 3D and to deduce its own motion. It planned an obstacle avoiding path to a desired destination on the basis of a model built with this information. The plan changed as the Cart perceived new obstacles on its journey. The system was reliable for short runs, but slow. The Cart moved one meter every ten to fifteen minutes, in lurches. After rolling a meter it stopped, took some pictures and thought about them for a long time. Then it planned a new path, executed a little of it, and paused again. It successfully drove the Cart through several 20 meter courses (each taking about five hours) complex enough to necessitate three or four avoiding swerves; it failed in other trials in revealing ways. The Rover system has been designed with maximum mechanical and control system flexibility to support a wide range of research in perception and control. It features an omnidirectional steering system, a dozen onboard processors for essential real time tasks, and a large remote computer to be helped by a high speed digitizing/data playback unit and a high performance array processor. Distributed high level control software similar in organization to the Hearsay II speech understanding system and the beginnings of a vision library are being readied
