Abstract
In this paper a general positioning subsystem that used for several kinds of mobile robot is presented. The subsystem consist of a Optical Fiber Gyroscope(OFG) with high precision and a Orthogonal Passive Wheel System(OPWS) which is combination of Swedish Wheels and Optical Encoders. The OPWS is an independent planar odometer which is regarded as the local reference of the kinematic model, while the OFG provides the instant angle between global and local reference frame of the robot. A dead recking model is developed regardless of the specific robot base structure. The error sources of the proposed positioning method is analyzed in allusion to an omnidirectional robot configuration. Calibration method based on geometric trajectory tracking is introduced according to the error sources, followed by the experimental results that confirm both feasibility of the positioning method and effectiveness of the calibration method.
