Abstract : This report presents the results of the Dynamic Image Interpretation for the Autonomous Vehicle Navigation project for the time period 2/26/85 to 7/12/89. The purpose of the project is to develop algorithms and tools to enable a robotic ground vehicle to navigate autonomously through realistic landscapes. In this final annual report, we summarize our accomplishments in constructing robust algorithms to be used for vehicle navigation as well as tools that have been developed to more efficiently utilize these algorithms.
