The flowers, mostly of four leaves, placed in form of a cross, are naked, having no calyx: in the center of the flower are many hairy stamina surrounding the pointal, which becomes a fruit; in which the seeds are gathered into a little head, ending in a kind of rough plume; whence it is called by the country people old man’s beard. The species are twelve, two of which grow wild. Philip Miller.

And this is important, once we see the 3D map of the environment we can start to understand how to best move through that environment, we don't want to be the fastest or the best climber, but we want to have a machine that can do many of these motions; as in the real world, the machine will need to have many different skills.
