Collision avoidance for nonholonomic mobile robots among unpredictable dynamic obstacles including humans

Abstract

In many service applications, mobile robots need to share their work areas with obstacles. Avoiding collisions is a fundamental requirement for these robots. In this paper a novel collision avoidance system is developed for avoiding unpredictable dynamic obstacles, including humans. The collision avoidance algorithm is based on the virtual force field (VFF… (More)
