  1. 1. Low-Cost Navigation Systems A Study of Four Problems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Isaac Skog; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Navigation; Inertial Navigation; Pedestrian Navigation; Inertial Measurement Unit; Time Synchronization; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Signal processing; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Signalbehandling;

    Abstract : Today the area of high-cost and high-performance navigation for vehicles is a well-developed field. The challenge now is to develop high-performance navigation systems using low-cost sensortechnology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mobile Robot Traversability Mapping For Outdoor Navigation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Peter Nordin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Traversability; Laser; Roughness; Mapping; Planning; Mobile robot; Navigation; Implementation;

    Abstract : To avoid getting stuck or causing damage to a vehicle or its surroundings a driver must be able to identify obstacles and adapt speed to ground conditions. An automatically controlled vehicle must be able to handle these identifications and adjustments by itself using sensors, actuators and control software. READ MORE

  3. 3. Recursive Bayesian Estimation : Navigation and Tracking Applications

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University

    Author : Niclas Bergman; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Target tracking; Autonomous aircraft navigation; Terrain navigation;

    Abstract : Recursive estimation deals with the problem of extracting information about parameters, or states, of a dynamical system in real time, given noisy measurements of the system output. Recursive estimation plays a central role in many applications of signal processing, system identification and automatic control. READ MORE

  4. 4. Indoor Navigation for Mobile Robots Control and Representations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Numerisk analys och datalogi

    Author : Philipp Althaus; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : mobile robots; robot navigation; indoor navigation; behaviour based robotics; hybrid deliberative systems; dynamical systems approach; topological maps; symbol anchoring; autonomous mapping; human-robot interaction;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with various aspects of indoor navigationfor mobile robots. For a system that moves around in ahousehold or office environment,two major problems must betackled. First, an appropriate control scheme has to bedesigned in order to navigate the platform. Second, the form ofrepresentations of the environment must be chosen. READ MORE

  5. 5. Estimation and Detection with Applications to Navigation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : David Törnqvist; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Navigation; SLAM; Particle Filter; Estimation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The ability to navigate in an unknown environment is an enabler for truly utonomous systems. Such a system must be aware of its relative position to the surroundings using sensor measurements. It is instrumental that these measurements are monitored for disturbances and faults. READ MORE
