Reliable perception of terrain slope and terrain traversability is a key-feature for any off-road unmanned ground vehicle, as well as for any Driver Assistance Systems designed to work in extreme environments, like mining. In this paper we want to present an innovative technique to build a 3D elevation map of the traversable terrain from a world's 3D dense(More)
Vision-based perception has been explored as low-cost, flexible technology for industrial applications and ADAS. Its inherent flexibility presents a challenge quantifying performance and often even quantifying increases or decreases in system performance as conditions change. Experience enables designers to employ various ”rules of thumb”(More)
