Controlling the motion of the mobile robot


Background/Objectives: The article contains some initial considerations with regard to the non-quantitative motion control. Methods: The approach implying the processing of the entire television frame discussed herein is more stable than existing approaches within the framework of which some specific points are selected and the tracking and recognition of these landmarks on the picture and at each control cycle. Let us consider the difference of rectilinear motion as compared with the motion along the arc for the two landmarks. Next, let us consider a simple way to distinguish landmarks on the television frame. Then we will discuss the original idea setting the motion path by means of the spectral analysis of the television frame. Finally, we will provide an example of this approach from the wildlife. Findings: Discussed concepts are new, aren’t encountered in the literature on robot’s navigation and motion control. In the author’s view such approach has great prospects.The main thing is that these methods are simple, and their application is possible for simple robots with low computational capability. Applications/Improvements: Given approach was preinspected on simple models. It showed method’s reasonably good stability against perturbations.
