An Innovative Real-time Distance Estimation Method for Distance-only navigation of a Mobile Robot - Abstract— Autonomous mobile robots have been employed in wide applications in human life such as industry, disasters, military, and security. Meanwhile, robot secure navigation and guidance toward targets became an attractive subject for researchers. In most recent navigation methods, both the line-of-sight angle and the relative distance between the robot and target are assumed to be available. On the other hand, some navigation algorithms are based on distance information. For example, Equiangular Navigation and Guidance (ENG) law is a range-only navigation law....   [tags: Research Analysis ]
