Additional Information:This paper introduces a new methodology and experimental implementations for real-time wave-based robot navigation in a complex, dynamically changing environment. The main idea behind the approach is to consider the robot arena as an excitable medium, in which moving objects / obstacles and the target are represented by sites of autowave generation: the target generates attractive waves, while the obstacles repulsive ones. This approach allows us to achieve a highly adaptive robot behavior and thus an optimal path along which the robot reaches the target while avoiding obstacles. The paper results from collaboration between UK, Italy and Spain, supported by EPSRC grant GR/R31225/01.
Uncontrolled Keywords:robot navigation, robot arena, autowave generation, robot behavior
