Long-Range Rover Autonomy with Bumblebee XB3
Long-Range Rover Autonomy with Bumblebee XB3 August 17th, 2010 -
The Autonomous Space Robotics Lab at the University of Toronto developed a technique to enable long-range autonomous navigation using a Bumblebee XB3 stereo camera as the only sensor. Using this technique, a rover may autonomously traverse a multi-kilometer route in unstructured, three-dimensional terrain, without an accurate global reconstruction.
The research project led by Paul Furgale and Tim Barfoot won the Kuka Service Robotics Best Paper Award at the 2010 IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2010) for their work.
