Flying Referencing System for an Autonomous Mobile Robot
In CDHAW of Tongji University an autonomous mobile robot system, is actually used for education of Bachelor students in the majors AES (Automotive Engineering & Service) as well as in MT (Mechatronics) and for development and research on different topics of both majors. One such research project is introduced in this paper. It aims to improve the inaccuracy of the robots built-in navigation system based upon odometry by development of a flying referencing system. It is described how the well known raster navigation is extended from a single point raster to a grid of lines which improves navigation correctness much better as by using the single points of the conventional raster navigation method.
