Paper Abstract

The performance of autonomous vehicle systems is currently limited by their inability to accurately analyze their surrounding environment. In order to function in a dynamic real world environment, an autonomous vehicle system must be capable of interpreting terrain based upon predetermined mission goals. This paper describes a concept of knowledge-based terrain analysis currently being developed to support the information needs of an autonomous helicopter system. The terrain analysis system consists of five integrated processing stages. Each process is discussed in detail and supported by a number of mission oriented examples.
