Sonar for recognising the texture of pathways

Abstract:

Sonar is a popular sensor for robotic guidance, particularly for obstacle avoidance and for mapping. It has been used too for classifying objects and different surfaces. In this paper, we investigate further its use for surface classification. We discuss the characteristics of ultrasound reflection from surfaces and describe features which can extract from the sonar signature (a range-intensity plot) to distinguish between them. We show that a small set of features taken from the backscatteri...
