In this paper, the authors have considered the problem of outdoor mobile robot navigation using Dead Reckoning (DR) system and single GPS receiver. DR is a very simple and practical positioning technique. It is used in various positioning and navigation applications, especially for the mobile robot. DR can provide short term precise navigation information. But its errors will generally accumulate as the mobile robot continues to travel, and the calculated position of the mobile robot will become less and less accurate. For outdoor navigation application, GPS exhibit lots of advantages.
