We present a method for sensor-based exploration of unknown environments by a robotic system equipped with rangefinders. The method is based on the incremental generation of a configuration-space data structure called sensor-based exploration tree (SET). The expansion of the SET is driven by information at the world level, where the perception process takes(More)
This paper presents a novel method for sensor-based exploration of unknown environments by a general robotic system equipped with multiple sensors. The method is based on the incremental generation of a configuration-space data structure called Sensor-based Exploration Tree (SET). The expansion of the SET is driven by information at the world level, where(More)
Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry and radargrammetry are two well-known technologies for generating digital surface models (DSMs) from SAR data acquired from satellite or airplane. However, standard SAR interferometry and radargrammetry have strong limits for the derivation of DSMs over urban areas, due to the complexity of urban scenarios and(More)
