Abstract

With social progress and technological development, mobile robots have played an important role in industries, medical care, safety, home and other fields due to their advantages of saving labor costs, reducing personnel work intensity, and avoiding potential job hazards. Especially in indoor environments, such as industrial indoor operations, warehousing and logistics distribution, indoor safety patrols, and other application scenarios, mobile robots have highlighted inestimable application value. Intelligent mobile robot is an important tool in the field of service and automation, and robot navigation technology is an important technology for intelligent mobile robot to achieve self-positioning, robot mapping and path planning. This paper expounds three technologies of mobile robot navigation mapping: visual mapping and positioning, lidar mapping and positioning, and sensor fusion mapping and positioning. After that, the method of path planning of the mobile robot is analyzed. Finally, the application of intelligent mobile robots in factory automation and supermarket guidance is pointed out, and the development trend of intelligent mobile robots is prospected.

Keywords

intelligent mobile robot, robot navigation, mapping and positioning, path planning.
