Bat-Inspired Robot Navigation

Abstract

A key objective of Robotics is the autonomous navigation of mobile robots through an obstacle field. Inspired by echolocating bats, we developed a two-part navigation system consisting of obstacle detection through echolocation and motion planning. The first part relies upon a binaural sonar system, which emits ultrasonic pulses and then determines the… (More)
