In this paper we describe our approach to the design of proximity sensor arrays. Each sensing element of the proximity sensor array is a composite sensor, i.e. a sensor which is composed of an in-air ultrasonic rangefinder and an infrared detector. This sensor arrangement is capable, in principle, to achieve a perception of the explored objects that is not necessarily limited to theirgeometricalproperties (size, shape and location relative to the sensor); possibly, the perception can be… CONTINUE READING
