Paper Abstract

One of the most important fields utilizing sensors is the field of robotics for robot navigation, target identification as well as object grasping by end-effector. To improve sensor performance in the identification of target of almost the same size, we propose a sensor design incorporating both MFH and direct sequence (DS) spread spectrum techniques. Also, these techniques are extended to provide capabilities in integration and/or fusion of information provided by multiple sensors. The results of a simulation study are presented showing the effectiveness of incorporating MFH/SS technique in the sensor design for enhancing target identification, for the autonomous mobile robots (AMR). Also, the capabilities of matched frequency hopping combined with angle diversity (MFH/AD) and cumulative matched frequency hopping (CMFH) modified techniques in integration and/or fusion of information provided by multiple sensors is illustrated.
