Landmarkbased robot navigation


Achieving goals despite uncertainty in control and sensing may require robots to perform complicated motion planning and execution monitoring. This paper describes a reduced version of the general planning problem in the presence of uncertainty and a complete polynomial algorithm solving it. The algorithm assumes that landmarks are scattered across the workspace, that robot control and position sensing are perfect within the fields of influence of these landmarks (the regions in which the landmarks can be sensed by the robot), and that control is imperfect and sensing null outside these fields. This leads us to view robot/workspace engineering as a means to make planning problems tractable.
