Paper Abstract

Landmark navigation appears promising, for the guidance of mobile robots. With this approach, a landmark target is recognized and used to update the position of the mobile robot. The purpose of this paper is to describe a color target recognition method with an omnidirectional vision system. The method using a color target arranged in a given spatial pattern is described. A recognition logic using thresholding of two color components was developed. This recognition technique is demonstrated by experiments which show the advantage of using color features. Color features add new dimensions and useful measures for target recognition.
