Paper Abstract

This paper presents the real-time vision system developed by Pavia University within the ENEA RAS project for the automatic driving of an intelligent snowcat able to follow the traces produced by other snowcats. A camera is used to acquire images of the scene in real-time; the image sequence is analyzed by a computer vision system which identifies the traces and produces a high level description of the scene. A further optional representation, in which black markers are superimposed onto the original acquired image, is transmitted to a human supervisor, located off-board.
