ABSTRACT
In many remote robotic tasks involving tele-operation, operator performance is
enhanced by integrating information acquired from various sensors, such as color,
infrared, and laser range cameras. A major difficulty in designing such a multi-sensor
system is the development of methods for combining the various data sources into
one world model for examination by the operator. By registering different sensing
modalities with LADAR range images, visualization techniques can be employed
for sensor integration. Using texture mapping, registered images can be displayed
through projection onto the range model to provide for 3D visualization of the data
acquired from each sensor.
Presented in this thesis is a novel stereo-based method for registering color and
