In this paper, we present a robust method for an autonomous mobile robot with a sonar-ring to follow walls. The sonar-ring is consisted of multiple ultrasonic range sensors. The proposed wall-following algorithm makes a robot be able to follow a wall in various shapes such as a square wall, a circular wall and etc. The autonomous mobile robot 'Yamabico' is used for experiments after equipped 12 directional sonar-ring. The on-board controller of the robot decided its motion based on sonar-ring range data every 3 centimeters going forward. We made many experiments with this autonomous mobile robot, and investigated the validity and the limits of this method.
