Seminar Robot Navigation (Freiburg, Winter 2007/2008)

A key component of any autonomous mobile robot is its navigation system. It allows the robot to move in a goal-oriented way through its environment. In order to do so, the robot must obtain a suitable description of the environment, like a metric or topological map. It must also estimate its own position in such a map. Path planning is used to determine a sequence of motions towards a goal. While the robot traverses the planned path it has to avoid collisions with obstacles. The seminar covers recent papers related to robot navigation.
