At some unknown time, the operation of these robots may be affected due to some actuator fault, which causes the robot to partially lose the(More)
Localization is a fundamental problem in mobile robotics. Several methods have been proposed over the years, among them Monte Carlo Localization. This method is preferred among many researchers because of its robustness and ability to work with a variety of sensor types. Most localization implementations use equipment that provide high resolution, accurate(More)
