Localization and tracking of mobile robots is an important issue for many industrial applications. The paper presents an inexpensive solution for indoor localization of mobile robots. Global localization is realized by measuring the signal strength of RFID transponders, which are integrated in the floor and detected by the reader. The paper presents two algorithms for fusing RFID signal strength measurements with odometry based on Kalman filtering. The paper presents experimental results with a… CONTINUE READING
