The combined action of several sensing systems, so that they are able to compensate the technical flaws of each other, is common in robotics. Monte Carlo Localization (MCL) is a popular technique used to estimate the pose of a mobile robot, which allows the fusion of heterogeneous sensor data. Several sensor fusion schemes have been proposed which include(More)
One of the greatest difficulties in stereo vision is the appearance of ambiguities when matching similar points from different images. In this article we analyze the effectiveness of using a fusion of multiple baselines and a range finder from a theoretical point of view, focusing on the results of using both prismatic and rotational articulations for(More)
This paper introduces a local planner which computes a set of commands, allowing an autonomous vehicle to follow a given trajectory. To do so, the platform relies on a localization system, a map and a cost map which represents the obstacles in the environment. The presented method computes a set of tentative trajectories, using a schema based on a Frenet(More)
When computing the trajectory of an autonomous vehicle, inevitable collision states must be avoided at all costs, so no harm comes to the device or pedestrians around it. In dynamic environments, considering collisions as binary events is risky and inefficient, as the future position of moving obstacles is unknown. We introduce a time-dependent(More)
