Mobile Robots Cooperation with Biased Exteroceptive Measurements


—When mobile robots need to cooperate, mutual localization is a key issue. The objective is to enable cooperative localization capabilities, such that each robot determines the partners positions in a common frame with reliable confidence estimates. Exteroceptive sensors can measure distances to known beacons in order to provide absolute information. It often exists biases that affect these measurements because of particular environment conditions or because of an inaccurate knowledge of the beacons positions. In this work, each robot is also equipped with proprioceptive sensors, but no sensor can measure the inter-distance between the robots. The method that we consider is fully distributed between the robots, which share positions and biases estimates. In order to handle the data incest problem, we use constraint propagation techniques on intervals. The distributed cooperative localization method gives sets that always contain the true positions of the robots without any over-convergence. Simulation results show that the so-called method improves localization performance compared to standalone methods.
