Abstract

This paper proposes a method of improving accuracy of self-position estimation with metallic landmark for mobile robot. Many methods of the past self-position estimation researches have been using GPS, Laser Range Scanner and CCD Camera. However, these methods may be unable to get landmark information correctly depending on environment. Metallic landmark is useful in those environments which conventional sensors cannot work well. Accuracy of self-position estimation was increased by combining information from metallic landmark with information from other equipments.
