Mobile robot movement control system with visual odometer

Extreme Robotics

The paper presents test of visual odometer that operates as position feedback sensor in mobile robot control system. Visual odometry is a path recovering approach based on computer vision and calculating of surroundings keypoints flow. The keypoints data comes from image sequence processing. Such system capable of working in unprepared nondeterministic environment and wheels slipping insensitive. The paper consists of implemented system description and results of it’s testing.
