Localization, navigation and identification of characteristics of the environment are of high importance in mobile robotics. In this paper we used methods of mobile robotics to derive highly accurate position information of a wood harvester's cabin as well as of its harvesting head. In addition to enhance the harvesting process, the fusion of data provided(More)
Lately, laser scanning even of huge areas has become economically sensible due to new airborne laser-scanners delivering higher resolutions and measurement frequency. In this paper we will describe a novel approach for single tree delineation based on airborne laser-scanner-data for use in forestry applications. This currently leads into the development a(More)
This paper focuses on joint work towards the development of simulation applications in the forest sector. They are based on advanced "semantic" world modeling techniques which use remote sensing data and processing algorithms to derive tree species classification maps, as well as forest stand attributes and single tree databases over large areas. The(More)
The development of control systems for multiple cooperating robot manipulators with redundant kinematics is still a demanding task. This task becomes even more challenging if the robots to be controlled operate in at least partly unknown environments which vary over time and which may be thousands of kilometers away from the operator, for example in space.(More)
