Flexible part feeding is a concept used in conjunction with a robotic manipulator, whereby the robot uses its vision system to locate parts that are randomly scattered on the feeder's presentation surface. This setup presents some new challenges for the vision system due to the stochastic nature of flexible feeding. Randomly-oriented parts have to be(More)
The inability of current robotic perception techniques to adequately detect non-geometric terrain hazards is a primary cause of failure for robots operating in natural terrain on Mars, the Moon, and Earth. Classical approaches detect surface appearance but do not measure the underlying mechanical properties that determine wheel-terrain interaction. Diurnal(More)
