One of the challenges of rescue robotics is to create robots that can autonomously traverse rough, unstructured terrain. Although mechanical engineering can produce very capable robots, mechanical engineering alone will not drive them. In this paper, we present a terrain feature extractor that can be taught to find significant features in range images of terrain around a robot. A terrain model is generated from the many points in the range sensor data. Techniques from the field of knowledgedoi:10.1109/ssrr.2007.4381260 fatcat:wrljgtvxmrfvxicaliofryxwlu
