35. Traversability Metrics for Urban Search and Rescue Robots on Rough Terrain
Published: 1/31/2007
Authors: V Molino, Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina, Anthony J Downs, Adam S Jacoff, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: Rough terrain, such as the rubble that we would expect to find in urban disaster areas, will likely impede robot mobility. The goal of this paper is to find methods for quantifying the difficulty a robot should encounter traversing a region of rough ...
