Abstract:

Two major aspects of remote device control were investigated locomotion and visual sensing. The remote device locomotion studies carried out under this grant have been aimed at the development of a theoretical understanding of the principles of legged vehicle design. It has long been recognized that the versatility of human beings in the extraction of relevant information from visual optical images far exceeds that of any machine. Yet, in particular circumstances, such as the reading of fixed font printed material, it has been possible to design special purpose processors with performance characteristics superior to those of humans. Recognizing this fact, the goal of this aspect of the present research program has been to attempt to devise automatic pictorial pattern recognition schemes comparable effective to character recognizers, but capable of operating in a less well controlled environment.
