This paper describes a stereo visual odometry system for volcanic fields which lack visual features on the ground. There are several technical problems in untextured terrain including the diversity of terrain appearance, the lack of well-tracked features on surfaces, and the limited computational resources of onboard computers. This paper tries to address(More)
Estimating the position of a robot is an essential requirement for the autonomous mobile robots. Visual Odom-etry (VO) can play a key role in navigation tasks on the slippery natural terrain, which highly degrades the accuracy of Wheel Odometry (WO), without relying neither on other infrastructures nor any prior knowledge. A challenge of the VO system lies(More)
