A more scientific testing approach is promoted in which the focus is on why and when an algorithm performs better, rather than if it is better. Such an approach is not only more informative for the...

In order to walk through structured surroundings without colliding with any obstacles or parts of that environment, humans rely for the most part on the visual system.
