This paper addresses the automatic mapping problem of moving an image sensor to collect the terrain information and concomitantly construct a terrain map while circumventing obstacles in the working field. A terrain map is incrementally built by image sensor readings. At each step, the robot decides where to go to collect new terrain information based on a partially-built map.
