    A fuzzy logic framework for onboard terrain analysis and guidance towards traversable regions. An onboard terrain-based navigation system for mobile robots operating on natural terrain is presented. This system utilizes a fuzzy-logic framework for onboard analysis of the terrain and develops a set of fuzzy navigation rules that guide the rover toward the safest and the most traversable regions. Th... View full abstract»

    This article discusses the design of a machine that can successfully maneuver heavy loads for extended periods of time over unstructured terrain, as found in forests, jungles, and deserts, as well as over structured terrain, such as stairs. Although there are machines that have sophisticated electronic and mechanical hardware that function successfully in rugged environments, increased reliability... View full abstract»
