Abstract

This paper describes a strategy of a mobile robot walkway following using color image. There are different colors in a walkway and lawn area alongside the walkway. The walkway area is extracted by an image processing. Color difference among walkway and waysides is considered in the image processing. Robustness against daylight change for segmentation of walkway area is also considered. The robot moves to the direction toward vanishing point of the walkway which is obtained from the image processing. Repeating these processes, the walkway following will be accomplished.
