Paper Abstract

Although numerous commercial opportunities exist for automated mobility solutions, few have been realized. Mobile robot development has faltered primarily due to the absence of high quality navigation data. This paper presents CONAC (computerized opto-electronic navigation and control), a solution to the navigation gap that offers a comprehensive approach to automated mobility. The major breakthrough is the development of a practical, real-time navigation technology that is thousands of times more accurate than GPS and is usable indoors or outdoors.
