About awarded research
“Path Planning based on Motion and Terrain Classification Uncertainty for Exploration Robots” This research aims at the safe autonomy of planetary exploration robots. Safe autonomy is required for planetary exploration robots because it takes a long communication delay time. However, due to various constraints, highly accurate localization and terrain classification are difficult. Therefore, this paper proposed a new chance-constrained path planning method that considers the probability of incorrect localization and classification.
Your impression & future plan
I am very honored to receive this award. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported this research. Encouraged by this award, I would like to continue to work on research to realize safe and efficient planetary exploration.
