Due to the low angles of sunlight at the lunar poles, craters and other depressions in the polar regions can contain areas which are in permanent darkness and are at cryogenic temperatures. Many scientists have theorized that these cold traps could contain large quantities of frozen volatiles such as water and carbon dioxide which have been deposited over(More)
This thesis presents a method for incrementally recognizing objects as they are sc.anned by range sensors mounted on a mobile platform, such as a construction. mining, or agric.ultural field robot. The method enhances the productivity of field robotic machines in these settings by allowing them to start planning and moving toward the object before scanning(More)
