Paper Abstract

The Computer Vision Laboratory at the University of Maryland has been participating in DARPA's Strategic Computing Program for the past year. Specifically, we have been developing a computer vision system for autonomous ground navigation of roads and road networks. The complete system runs on a VAX 11/785, but certain parts of the system have been reimplemented on a VICOM image processing system for experimentation on an autonomous vehicle built for the Martin Marietta Corp., Aerospace Division in Denver, Colorado. We give a brief overview here of the principal software components of the system, and then describe the VICOM implementa-tion in detail.
