A Goal Oriented Navigation System Using Vision
Keywords:Goal-Oriented Navigation, Mobile Robots, Monocular Vision, Behavioral Design,
AbstractThis paper addresses a goal oriented navigation framework in a behavior-based manner for autonomous systems. The framework is mainly designed based on a behavioral architecture and relies on a monocular vision camera to obtain the location of goal. The framework employs a virt ual physic based method to steer the robot towards the goal while avoiding unknown obstacles, located along its path. Simulation results validate the performance of the proposed framework.
