Abstract
Rock is one kind of dangerous hazards for lunar landing, a small rock about 0.5-1.0 meter tall can damage the lander and make the whole mission failed1. In this paper, we provide an improved method for rock detection based on shadows and texture for safe lunar landing, which can detect and model the rocks in the lunar surface image precisely. Although traditional rock detection algorithms can get a good result in the experimental environment full of rocks, it does not work well in the real, uneven environment with all kinds of hazards. Our algorithm can adapt to various environment because of the precisely extracting shadows of rocks and texture analyses after rock modeling.
