Abstract

To ensure safe and efficient operation of mobile robots in a work space, it is essential that the robots act to keep global maps reliable in a given environment. The system proposed in this paper is to study global maps using mobile robots in order to keep the global map information as reliable as possible. That is, this system is a coordinate control method designed to dynamically detect certain information in global maps using robots. The basic principle of this method is to study the information on environments using mobile robots that move along Chinese postman routes in an environment. Mobile robots are controlled to detect environmental variations represented by the discovery of impassable points, and to equalize the reliability of global maps as far as possible through their activities coordinated with other robots. This paper evaluates the harmonization of such global map control system using mobile robots, that is, the reliability of information described in global maps, and proposes a method for having mobile robots perform harmonized work to equalize the reliability of global maps.
