ABSTRACT Fiber optic gyros (FOG) is the important sensor for measuring the heading of mobile robot. Combined with measured data of
E-Core RD1100 interferometric FOG made by American KVH company, the paper analyses the common calibration for the heading
errors of mobile robot caused by the drift of FOG, and uses the method of evolutionary neural networks prediction to compensate
it. By the experiments of mobile robot prototype, the paper also proves this method can reduce the error influence of FOG
on the heading of mobile robot and enhance the localization precision of mobile robot navigation.

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes two methods aimed at improving dead-reckoning accuracy with fiber-optic gyroscopes (FOGs) in mobile robots. The first method is a precision calibration procedure for FOGs, which effectively reduces the ill effects of nonlinearity of the scale-factor and temperature dependency. The second method is the implementation of an indirect feedback Kalman filter that fuses the sensor data from the FOG with the odometry system of the mobile robot. The paper also provides experimental results and compares the relative effectiveness of the two methods as implemented on a four-wheel drive/skidsteer Pioneer AT mobile robot

    ABSTRACT: A low-cost solid-state inertial navigation system (INS) for mobile robotics applications is described. Error models for the inertial sensors are generated and included in an extended Kalman filter (EKF) for estimating the position and orientation of a moving robot vehicle. Two different solid-state gyroscopes have been evaluated for estimating the orientation of the robot. Performance of the gyroscopes with error models is compared to the performance when the error models are excluded from the system. Similar error models have been developed for each axis of a solid-state triaxial accelerometer and for a conducting-bubble tilt sensor which may also be used as a low-cost accelerometer. An integrated inertial platform consisting of three gyroscopes, a triaxial accelerometer and two tilt sensors is described
