Abstract

In this paper we address the issue of Computer Vision in Antarctica for robot navigation by analysing images collected at Patriot Hills, Antarctica in the Fall of 1998. Conditions produced by polar weather and terrain are unique and challenging for perception equipment and computer vision algorithms. The later aspect will be studied here through the evaluation of a colour segmentation algorithm, a stereovision algorithm and a feature points detector and tracker algorithm.
