Route tracking for service robots using natural landmarks

    Abstract

    This paper discusses navigation of service robots operating inside public buildings and homes. Natrual landmarks extracted from ultrasonic and light intensity sensor data are used in route tracking and robot positioning. Cost effective and general-purpose methods are presented for route tracking on uncertain position and map information. Positioning using fuzzy logic, local route planning and trajectory based collision avoidance make it possible to track relatively complex routes with simple route descriptions.
