Domain Adaptation for Mobile Robot Navigation

Domain Adaptation for Mobile Robot Navigation

This video was recorded at NIPS Workshops, Whistler 2009. An important challenge in outdoor mobile robotic perception is maintaining terrain classification performance throughout the extremely variable conditions that we may wish a robot to operate under. Outdoor robots operate in a series of "environments" that consist of diverse terrain, vegetation, weather, and lighting conditions. A physical robot does not randomly jump between environments; typically it will operate for long stretches of time in one particular environment, making it advantageous to adapt the robot's performance to its current environment.
