Paper Abstract

Adaptive and intelligent multisensor perception is a characteristic that will be needed for space robotics and automation systems in order to improve productivity and flexibility. However, one of the major technical difficulties is related to illumination conditions in space. Space robotic systems, whether autonomous or not, will have to evolve and operate in a wide variety of illumination conditions within their mission: night, deep shadows, high illumination, or specularities. These robotic systems will also have to perceive and recognize the reflectance and emittance properties of a wide variety of rough surfaces. The purpose of our current research is to study a multisensor perception system that will be able: (1) to adapt the sensing strategy to lighting conditions, and (2) to allow for the geometrical and physical analysis of the surface properties on the scene.
