Paper Abstract

To facilitate experiments in bipedal walking, we have developed a method for fast autonomous recognition of footholds marked by a distinctive color. An image patch is taken to be part of a foot-hold if its color is within a specified region of red-green-blue space and the patch is sufficiently large. The method is suitable for continuous use while the machine is walking and is robust with respect to variations in ambient lighting.
