In small mobile robot research, autonomous platforms are severely constrained in navigation environments by the limitations of accurate sensory data to preform critical path planning, obstacle avoidance and self-localization tasks. The motivation for this work is to enable small autonomous mobile robots with a local stereo vision system that will provide an accurate reconstruction of a navigation environment for critical navigation tasks. This paper presents the KCLBOT, which was developed in King’s College London’s Centre for Robotic Research and is a small autonomous mobile robot with a stereo vision system.
