The overall goal of this research effort is to develop a means for an autonomous rover to use vision to improve estimates of its own pose by using naturally occurring terrain features as landmarks. The approach assumes that the rover is given no a priori map information, and so must estimate where the landmarks are in order to use them to estimate its own pose.
