Abstract

An obstacle avoidance method has been proposed as an application example of image-based mobile robot control with a monocular camera. However, since distance information is not obtained in this method, an avoidance priority is not given to each obstacle, so that the avoidance accuracy deteriorates. Therefore, a method is proposed for avoiding some obstacles with distance information obtained from optical flows, and then it is compared with a conventional method.
