Localization Algorithms of a Mobile Robot


Background/Objectives: Localization is the detection of the present coordinates of the robot. Object of this article is a proposition to use for these purposes a simple method of television camera’s image processing. Methods: The wheel sensor (odometer) and only one television camera are used for this. The process of the entire image is carried out in an integrated manner. Findings: 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. Applications/Improvements: The given algorithm has been tested on two robotic tools and showed good resistance to the vibrations of the television camera and the interference of the television picture.
