OFF-ROAD NAVIGATION FROM SELECTIVE STABILIZATION
This paper studies the problem of selective stabilization, defined here as the separation of rotation components due to smooth rotation and oscillatory rotation. In applications to off road navigation, in addition to the desired smooth attitude change, a vehicle undergoes high frequency vibration. Both kinematic and kinetic models suitable for capturing these phenomena and achieving their separation are considered. The approach uses various dynamic laws to model the behavior of the vehicle, and relies on Extended Kalman Filters for the estimation. Multiple visual clues are exploited to obtain the rotational parameters. A scheme for detecting the occurrence and disappearance of smooth rotation is devised. Appropriate dynamic laws are employed to achieve selective stabilization.
