Efficient Roughness Recognition for Velocity Updating by Wheeled-Robots Navigation [chapter]

Farid García, Matías Alvarado
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper is shown that the Appearance-Based modeling is the best pattern recognition method for supporting the velocity updating of wheeled-robots navigation.  ...  Actually, the detailed recognition algorithms success in recognizing patterns depicted with lines, dots or borders, but they fail for recognizing patterns where the average appearance is required.  ...  The human's estimation on the right velocity to safe navigate on irregular terrains is via imprecise but enough surface texture recognition [3] .  ...
