Mobile robot navigation investigation

A number of fundamentally different approaches are available for mobile robot navigation [1]. There are different issues, advantages, and disadvantages for each approach that substantially affect performance. This project is to investigate which is better and why, and also to see if improvements can be made. Simulated [2] and physical [3] wheeled robots are available, […]

Moving obstacle navigation by robots through a dynamic web

For a robot to autonomously and freely move in spaces where people and other robots are moving, moving obstacles have to be navigated safely. Yet moving obstacles are recognised to be a more challenging problem than static ones due to motion planning requiring trajectories in space-time rather than just paths in space to be considered […]
