Vision-based obstacle avoidance for a small, low-cost robot

  title={Vision-based obstacle avoidance for a small, low-cost robot},
  author={Chau Nguyen Viet and Ian Marshall},
This paper presents a vision-based obstacle avoidance algorithm for a small indoor mobile robot built from low-cost, and off-the-shelf electronics. The obstacle avoidance problem in robotics has been researched extensively and there are many well established algorithms for this problem. However, most of these algorithms are developed for large robots with expensive, specialised sensors, and powerful computing platforms. We have developed an algorithm that can be implemented on very small robots… CONTINUE READING
