GPS Based Navigation of an Autonomous Mobile Vehicle
This paper presents an autonomous mobile robot built on a hardware platform of a remote controlled outdoor vehicle. The components are discussed, including platform, sensors, controller and GPS hardware. A new introduced middleware allowing other devices to control the robot on a more abstract level is presented. Using GPS receiver the vehicle is capable to navigate to given targets. The architecture of the platform and three different software approaches of achieving autonomy are described and evaluated.
