Behaviour-based navigation, mobile robot, kinematics model
Potential field method bas been widely used in obstacle avoidance for mobile robots because of its elegance and simplicity. However, this method has inherent drawbacks. Considering this, this paper introduces a new behaviour-based navigation strategy. Aiming at a mobile robot SDLG-1 developed by the authors, the kinematics model is built based on its motion structure. Using twelve sonar sensors, the strategy algorithm of behaviour-based navigation control is brought forth. Based on the algorithm, software simulations and experimental evaluations have been conducted. Both results indicate the navigation strategy proposed in this paper is effective.
