I am interested in learning terrain-assessment algorithms for mobile robots. Typically, terrain assessment is accomplished using a set of heuristics rules to analyze images obtained from a camera. Instead, we show that learning to assess terrain from previous experiences improves the terrain assessment estimates, allowing for more autonomy while still safeguarding the robot.
