In view-based navigation, view sequences are constructed by considering only the appearance of images. This approach can work only in limited situation, because the structure of environment and camera poses with 3D camera motion is not considered. In this paper, we construct a multi sensor system using an omnidirectional camera, a motion sensor and laser range finders. Using this system, we propose a method of construction view sequence, that takes 3D camera poses into account.
