청소 로봇, 관광 안내 로봇부터 우주 탐사로봇까지 자율이동로봇의 응용분야가 넓어짐에 따라서 자율이동로봇의 인기는 급속도로 높아지고 있다. 하지만 동적인 환경 내에서 자율이동로봇의 안전한 네비게이션을 위한 만족스러운 제어 알고리즘은 여전히 연구 과제이다. 본 논문에서는 새로운 Potential field method를 이용한 제어 방법을 제안하였고, 컴퓨터 시뮬레이션을 통해 제안한 알고리즘을 실행하고 분석하였고, 이 실험 결과들로서 Potential field method를 사용한 행동(behavior)에 기반한 제어 시스템의 유효성을 나타내었다.
The popularity of autonomous mobile robots have been rapidly increasing due to their new emerging application area, from room cleaning, tourist guidance to space explorations. However, the development of a satisfactory control algorithm that will enable the autonomous mobile robots to navigate safely especially in dynamic environments is still an open research problem. In this paper, a newly proposed potential field based control method is implemented, analyzed, and improvements are suggest based on experimental results obtain from computer simulations. The experimental results are presented to show the effectiveness of the behavior-based control using the proposed potential field generation technique.
