Knowledge acquisition and representation techniques are developed to allow an autonomous vehicle to negotiate a path over partially unknown terrain, such as the long-distance traverses for the Mars Rover Saayle Return Mission. Terrain navigation is accomplished by the following sequence of steps: The skylines from the visibility map and from the space are(More)
A new non-local algorithm for accurately calculating the band-to-band tunneling current suitable for TCAD semiconductor simulators is proposed in this abstract. The proposed algorithm captures the essential physics of multi-dimensional tunneling in a 2D structure, and is designed to be robust and to achieve independence on the mesh grid. The new algorithm(More)
In this paper, we present an algorithm for robot simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) using a Kinect sensor, which is a red-green-blue and depth (RGB-D) sensor. The distortions of the RGB and depth images are calibrated before the sensor is used as a measuring device for robot navigation. The calibration procedure includes the correction of the RGB(More)
