Abstract

Many untethered mobile robots require an operator's vision and intelligence for guidance and navigation. Animals and insects, however, use sensory systems such as hearing, and tactile inputs to move autonomously through their environment. This paper discusses the implementation of a binaural sensory pod using an ultrasonic emitter and two receivers on a mobile robot that employs legged-style locomotion. A series of obstacle avoidance behaviors programmed onto a microcontroller allows the robot is to successfully navigate a cluttered environment both semi-autonomously and autonomously. © 2006 IEEE.
