Paper Abstract

A microprocessor based multisensor robotic locating system (RLS) was designed and is currently under development. The system uses primarily off-the-shelf components, integrated into a single package applicable to a wide variety of robotic tasks. Range and orientation to a specified target is measured using a combination of video camera, illuminator, ultra-sonics, and optical rangefinder. The processing algorithms are designed to operate in real time by exploiting known patterns that are on the target in the form of retroreflective material.
