- Electronic compass is a kind of absolute sensor that can measure the azimuth by use of the earth's magnetic field. Electronic compass is widely applied in mobile robot autonomous navigation. An electronic compass applied to a certain kind of out-door mobile robot is introduced in this paper. Data format of electronic compass is analyzed. Data acquisition method in Linux operating system is presented in detail. Experimental results show that the proposed method can obtain stable angle data, can meet the navigation demand of outdoor autonomous mobile robot.
