Advances in space robotics technology hinge to a large extent upon the development and deployment of sophisticated new vision-based methods for automated in-space mission operations and scientific survey. To this end, we have developed a new concept for automated terrain analysis that is based upon a generic image enhancement platform—multi-scale retinex (msr) and visual servo (vs) processing. This pre-conditioning with the msr and the vs produces a “canonical” visual representation that is… CONTINUE READING
