We present a new terrain classification technique both for effective, autonomous locomotion over natural, unknown terrains and for the qualitative analysis of terrains for exploration and mapping. Our straight-forward approach requires a single camera with little processing of visual information. Specifically, we derived a gait bounce measure from visual… CONTINUE READING
