Robot Evidence Grids by Martin C Martin ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The evidence grid representation was formulated at the CMU Mobile Robot Laboratory in 1983 to turn wide angle range measurements from cheap robot-mounted sonar sensors into detailed spatial maps. It accumulates diffuse evidence about the 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 surprisingly well in the 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 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 formations 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

Robot spatial perception by stereoscopic vision and 3D evidence grids by Hans P Moravec ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Abstract: "Very encouraging results have been obtained from a new program that derives a dense three-dimensional evidence grid representation of a robot's surroundings from wide-angle stereoscopic images. The program adds several spatial rays of evidence to a grid for each of about 2,500 local image features chosen per stereo pair. It was used to construct a 256 x 256 x 64 grid, representing 6 by 6 by 2 meters, from a hand-collected test set of twenty stereo image pairs of an office scene. Fifty nine stereo pairs of an 8 by 8 meter laboratory were also processed. The positive (probably occupied) cells of the grids, viewed in perspective, resemble dollhouse scenes. Details as small as the curvature of chair armrests are discernible. The processing time, on a 100 MIPS Sparc 20, is less than 5 seconds per stereo pair, and total memory is under 16 megabytes. The results seem abundantly adequate for very reliable navigation of freely roaming mobile robots, and plausibly adequate for shape idenfication of objects bigger than 10 centimeters. The program is a first proof of concept, and awaits optimizations, enhancements, variations, extensions and applications."
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
