Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the design of a four-legged robot which has a laser mounted on each leg which provides a real-time high-definition range image of the ground surroundings about each leg. A means of terrain classification using fractals and methods for the automatic extraction of information from the range images having implications for footfall placement are provided.
