• Building Fuzzy Elevation Maps from a Ground-based 3D Laser Scan for Outdoor Mobile Robots 

      Mandow, Anthony; Cantador, Tomás J.; Reina, Antonio J.; Martínez, Jorge L.; Morales-Rodriguez, Jesus; [et al.] (2015-11-24)
      The paper addresses terrain modeling for mobile robots with fuzzy elevation maps by improving computational speed and performance over previous work on fuzzy terrain identification from a three-dimensional (3D) scan. To ...
    • Concept, Development and Testing of Mars Rover Prototypes for ESA Planetary Exploration 

      Azkarate, Martin; Gerdes, Levin; Wiese, Tim; Zwick, Martin; Pagnamenta, Marco; [et al.] (2021)
      This paper presents the system architecture and design of two planetary rover laboratory prototypes developed at the European Space Agency (ESA). These research platforms have been developed to provide early prototypes for ...
    • Dynamic path planning for reconfigurable rovers using a multi-layered grid 

      Sánchez Ibáñez, José Ricardo; Perez-del-Pulgar-Mancebo, Carlos Jesus; Azkarate, Martin; Gerdes, Levin; Garcia-Cerezo, Alfonso J. (2019-12-18)
      Autonomy on rovers is desirable in order to extend the traversed distance, and therefore, maximize the number of places visited during the mission. It depends heavily on the information that is available for the ...
    • Efficient Autonomous Navigation for Planetary Rovers with Limited Resources 

      Gerdes, Levin; Azkarate, Martin; Sánchez Ibáñez, José Ricardo; Joudrier, Luc; Perez-del-Pulgar-Mancebo, Carlos Jesus (2020-02-26)
      Rovers operating on Mars are in need of more and more autonomous features to ful ll their challenging mission requirements. However, the inherent constraints of space systems make the implementation of complex algorithms ...
