Infra-red location system for navigation of autonomous vehicles

Abstract

A beacon method for locating autonomous vehicles in a flexible manufacturing environment is presented, and typical positioning errors of such a method are computed. Data obtained from an experimental beacon navigation system support the analytical results which indicate excellent positioning accuracy is possible over a large workspace, and that unlike dead reckoning systems, navigation errors are dependent solely upon the vehicle's position in the workspace and not the distance traveled.
