This paper describes a new local avoidance method for indoor mobile robots. The method uses a directional method named the Beam Method to improve the performance of a local obstacle avoidance approach called Curvature Velocity Method (CVM). The proposed Beam Method employs radial distances provided by the robot sensors to calculate the best one-step… CONTINUE READING
