Localization and Path Planning of Intelligent Wheelchair Based on Data Fusion
Focuses on the range error of sonar due to specular reflection, a method of weighted fusion has been used to fuse the data of sonar and camera and make the intelligent wheelchair complete the localization accurately at the area of corner. A path planning for the wheelchair is then given. After testing experiments, results show that the method can make the wheelchair passing through a corner safely and smoothly.
