Mobile robot navigation with the use of semantic map constructed from 3D laser range scans

  title={Mobile robot navigation with the use of semantic map constructed from 3D laser range scans},
  author={Barbara Siemiątkowska and Jacek Szklarski and Michal Gnatowski},
  journal={Control and Cybernetics},
We describe a system allowing a mobile robot equipped with a 3D laser range finder to navigate in the indoor and outdoor environment. A global map of the environment is constructed, and the particle filter algorithm is used in order to accurately determine the position of the robot. Based on data from the laser only, the robot is able to recognize certain classes of objects like a floor, a door, a washbasin, or a wastebasket, and places like corridors or rooms. For complex objects, the…

BIM Based Indoor Navigation System of Hermes Mobile Robot

The described representation enables semantic robot navigation with a goal specified at a various levels of abstraction and the concept of hierarchical action planning is presented, where the plan is a time-optimized path combined with a sequence of actions required for robot movement across the whole building.

Hybrid path planning for mobile robot using known environment model with semantic layer

This paper presents a path planning algorithm using multiple models derived from known environment map that benefits from the hierarchy structure as the search space is narrowed in subsequent abstraction levels and less computing power is required for finding a valid route.
