Abstract
Autonomous mobile robot “MAUV”

We developed MAUV, an autonomous mobile robot that has navigation using two types of landmarks; ambient magnetic and geometric. This enables the robot to localize robustly in actual outdoor environments. The robot achieved missions in Tsukuba Challenge 2011, 12, and 13.
