Reliable localization is a fundamental issue in robot navigation techniques. This paper describes an apporach for realizing
self-localization of mobile robot by matching the local map generated from a 2D laser scanner. Environment map is represented
by occupancy grids and it fuses the information of the robot’s pose using dead-reckoning method and the range to obstacles
by laser scanner using maximum likehood estimation. After a current laser scan, the positon of mobile robot, in relation to
a previous scan and pose estimates, is computed by matching the local map using fuzzy logic method. The effectiveness of this
method is demonstrated by experiments.
