Obstacle avoidance and navigation in the real world by a seeing robot rover by Hans P Moravec( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 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)

New destinies( 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

Autonomous Mobile Robots( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1981 the Mobile Robot laboratory of the Robotics Institute of Carnegie-mellon University has conducted basic research in areas crucial for autonomous robots. We have built three mobile robots as testbeds for new concepts in control, vision, planning, locomotion and manipulation. This report recounts our work in 1985. Included are two papers describing two-dimensional sonar mapping and navigation, and a proposal for a three dimensional sonar. Three papers cover recent results in stereo visual navigation - we have achieved a tenfold speedup and a tenfold increase in navigational accuracy over our first generation system, and have a much deeper understanding of some of the mathematical foundations. Three papers describe results in a road navigation task - we are now able to navigate a simple road network at walking speeds with a single color camera on a roving robot using a variety of image processing and navigation methods. Three papers describe aspects of motion control, motors, wheeled kinematics and vehicle dynamics. Two papers present our newest robots, Neptune and Uranus. A final article gives some along term motivations and expectations for mobile robot research, and the report ends with a bibliography of our publications. (Author)

Robot evidence grids by Martin C Martin( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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."
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

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
