Robust pose estimation for a car-like vehicle
Usher, Kane, Dunbabin, Matthew, Corke, Peter, & Ridley, Peter (2004) Robust pose estimation for a car-like vehicle. In Proceedings 2004 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation ICRA '04, IEEE, Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, pp. 5129-5134.
In this paper, we outline the sensing system used for the visual pose control of our experimental car-like vehicle, the autonomous tractor. The sensing system consists of a magnetic compass, an omnidirectional camera and a low-resolution odometry system. In this work, information from these sensors is fused using complementary filters. Complementary filters provide a means of fusing information from sensors with different characteristics in order to produce a more reliable estimate of the desired variable. Here, the range and bearing of landmarks observed by the vision system are fused with odometry information and a vehicle model, providing a more reliable estimate of these states. We also present a method of combining a compass sensor with odometry and a vehicle model to improve the heading estimate.
