RFID-Based Mobile Robot Positioning - Sensors and Techniques
Mobile robot navigation using analog signal strength of a Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) device is a promising alternative of different types of robot navigation methods in the state of the art. Skilled navigation in mobile robotics usually requires solving two problems: the knowledge of the position of the robot, and a motion control strategy. Moreover, when no prior knowledge of the environment is available, the problem becomes even more challenging, since the robot has to build a map of its surroundings as it moves. Exact knowledge of the position of a vehicle is a fundamental problem in mobile robot applications. In search for a solution, researchers and engineers have developed a variety of systems, sensors, and techniques for mobile robot positioning.
