Do me a favor, take a few seconds to have a look at my last project.

Thank you, Lulu

RFID mobile robot localization


This page presents a list of selected research papers on RFID based mobile robot localization. RFID tags are usualy placed on/in the ground and the robot embeds an RFID sensor. The antenna is located below the base frame. When the robot is closed enough from the tag, it reads the ID and updates its position. It assumes the robot had an up to date map of RFID tags associating the ID and the accurate position of the RFID tag.
