Abstract

This paper describes an improved running control algorithm based on the visual servoing in consideration of the turning back of a running path to avoid an obstacle on the path by changing the running path. This paper also describes an experimental autonomous running vehicle to demonstrate the algorithm. As a vision sensor, the vehicle equips with a video-rate stereo range finder which processes color images from stereo CCD cameras and is developed in the authors' laboratory. From the several basic autonomous running experiments, it is concluded that the experimental vehicle runs smoothly any planned path composed of several teaching routes by transferring routes. It is also concluded that the vehicle can turn back on a path including turning back of route transference.
