Dead reckoning

View this topic in
In navigation, dead reckoning (also ded reckoning or DR) is the process of calculating one's current position by using a previously determined position, or fix, and advancing that position based upon known or estimated speeds over elapsed time, and course. While traditional methods of dead reckoning are no longer considered primary means of navigation, modern inertial navigation systems, which also depend upon dead reckoning, are very widely used.

2002 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence. 2002 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems. FUZZ-IEEE'02. Proceedings (Cat. No.02CH37291), 2002

We consider the problem of sharing knowledge in multi-robot exploration. It is difficult for each robot to explore accurately because of sensor errors and dead reckoning errors. We use the belief measure as the expression of sensor values in each robot for exploring an unknown environment. Then, multiple robots share the knowledge about some targets or some obstacles of the ...


Mobile robot localization by dead reckoning

Position estimation of mobile robots with internal and external sensors using uncertainty evolution technique

Proceedings., IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, 1990

A wheeled mobile robot on a flat plane can estimate its current location and orientation from the cumulative wheel rotation (dead reckoning). The method, however, has the drawback that estimation errors are accumulated as the robot moves, and the accuracy of estimation decreases. To address this problem, a positioning technique using an external sensor is needed. The authors propose a ...

  • Sharing of exploring information using belief measure for multi robot exploration

    We consider the problem of sharing knowledge in multi-robot exploration. It is difficult for each robot to explore accurately because of sensor errors and dead reckoning errors. We use the belief measure as the expression of sensor values in each robot for exploring an unknown environment. Then, multiple robots share the knowledge about some targets or some obstacles of the environment considering the degree of trust for other robots. The key point of this method is that robots have not a common map, but each robot has his map for sharing exploring information. The effectiveness of our approach is demonstrated by a real experiment for the case of two mobile robots.

    A wheeled mobile robot on a flat plane can estimate its current location and orientation from the cumulative wheel rotation (dead reckoning). The method, however, has the drawback that estimation errors are accumulated as the robot moves, and the accuracy of estimation decreases. To address this problem, a positioning technique using an external sensor is needed. The authors propose a more general positioning method whereby the robot can act autonomously and move along a path unlimited by positioning. The robot can modify the position estimated by dead reckoning by repeating low-level sensing asynchronously and intermittently. This method uses not only the estimated position data but also the accuracy of the dead reckoning and the external sensor effectively.<<ETX>>

  • Design of Seamless Changing Method for AUV Integrated Navigation System

    A seamless changing method for AUV integrated navigation system was proposed considering the SINS/DVL and Compass/DVL integrated navigation method have their own advantage for linear motion and curvilinear motion. Bearing consistent check combining with the measure remnant method was discussed as the maneuver checking method, and the adaptive Kalman filter was used by SINS/DVL integrated navigation system for the motion changing state. The simulation results confirm the new approach could improve the accuracy of the integrated navigation system, and enhance the motion capability for AUV.

  • Application of Assisted TDOA Technology in Vehicle Positioning and Navigation System

  • Mobile robot localization using color signboard

    Summary form only given. This paper proposes a localization method of indoor mobile robot using vision and color signboard. The color signboard is placed in the environment as landmark to decide the robot's absolute position. The signboard is also attached to each robot for localization among robots. The color signboard is designed such that the robot can perform three key functions: the signboard detection, identification and localization. Autonomous navigation of mobile robots in wide area as well as cooperative operations requires many signboards with unique identification pattern. The color coding method allows us to make many distinct signboards. Several mobile robots hovering in the same environment may cause the unforeseen obstruction to the viewing of the signboards. Our color signboard allows the robot to verify its own position when the signboard is visible entirely in the field of view. The absolute positioning algorithm for mobile robot using the color signboard is described, where the vision and odometric dead reckoning information is combined by the extended Kalman filter.

  • The diversity among IVHS navigation systems worldwide

    More than 100 intelligent vehicle highway system (IVHS) navigation systems are being built worldwide. Japan and the United States are the leaders in developing systems, with the second grouping of countries being Germany, the United Kingdom and Canada. Various positioning technologies such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), the Radio Determination Satellite System RDSS, dead reckoning, signposts, map matching, and terrestrial RF systems are used more in some countries than in others, and these trends are reported. Countries in some regional blocks use certain positioning technologies more prominently than those used in other blocks. Examples of novel systems in the four basic categories (autonomous, fleet management, advisory, and inventory) are given to illustrate the trend toward specific market penetration and thus the diversity among systems. A brief description of future trends is given.

  • Online map building evolutionary algorithm for multi-agent mobile robots with odometric uncertainty

    An online map building evolutionary algorithm is proposed using multi-agent mobile robots with odometric uncertainty. The control algorithm for map building in each robot is identical and trained by an online evolutionary algorithm (EA). Each robot has configuration uncertainty which increases as it moves, and it perceives the surrounding environment information by the limited range sensors. It communicates with other robots and shares the information. The elementary behaviors are defined and they are used to build a map. EA is applied to the defined behavior set for optimizing the robot actions. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm, computer simulations are conducted for various environments.
