Localization is essential to modern autonomous robots in order to enable effective completion of complex tasks over possibly large distances in low structured environments. In this paper, a extended Kalman filter is used in order to implement self-localization. This is done by merging odometry and localization information, when available. The used landmarks(More)
Industrial control systems architectures have been evolving to the decentralization of control tasks. This evolution associated with the time-critical nature of these tasks, increases the dependability requirements for one of their most critical components: the communication system. Therefore, this is an important aspect on the control system design which(More)
