Localisation and Mapping Using a Laser Range Finder: A Goal-Seeking Approach

Sotirios Ch. Diamantas, Richard M. Crowder
2009 2009 Fifth International Conference on Autonomic and Autonomous Systems  
An inherent property of this is obstacle avoidance. The simulated experiments presented in the paper validate the effectiveness of our approach.  ...  For the localisation and mapping process to take place we assume that the mobile robot will follow a path until a landmark is observed by the laser scanner.  ...  The process of finding a 'distinctive landmark' is critical for the path to be extracted as is needed to be as close to the autonomous agent as possible.  ...
