Abstract
This report reviews progress at Carnegie Mellon from August 16, 1989 to August 15, 1990 on research sponsored by DARPA, DoD, monitored by the U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories under contract DACA 76-89-C-0014, title "Perception for Outdoor Navigation."

Research supported by this contract includes perception for road following, terrain mapping for off-road navigation, and systems software for building integrated mobile robots. We overview our efforts for the year, and list our publications and personnel, then provide further detail on several of our subprojects.
