An efficient model-based image understanding method for an autonomous vehicle
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-09)
The problem discussed in this dissertation is the development of an efficient method for visual navigation of autonomous vehicles. The approach is to significantly reduce the expensive computational time of landmark detection ...
New motion planning and real-time localization methods using proximity for autonomous mobile robots
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1996-09)
One of the most difficult theoretical problems in robotics--motion planning for rigid body robots-- must be solved before a robot can perform real- world tasks such as mine searching and processing. This dissertation ...
Layered safe motion planning for autonomous vehicles
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1995-09)
The major problem addressed by this research is how to plan a safe motion for autonomous vehicles in a two dimensional, rectilinear world. With given start and goal configurations, the planner performs motion planning which ...
Automated cartography by an autonomous mobile robot using ultrasonic range finders
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-09)
The problem solved was for an autonomous mobile robot to generate a precise map of its orthogonal, indoor environment. The maps generated by the robot's sensors must be perfect so they can be used in subsequent navigation ...
