Sensory system in autonomous robots

A tele-supervised autonomous robot needs to have accurate information on its position, orientation, and velocity and the location of nearby obstacles (sensory system). The robot needs multiple sensors to gather all the information required and a computer to read the sensor data and make decisions based on it. Information on the robot’s environment can be acquired using laser distance sensors, ultrasonic distance sensors, infrared distance sensors or cameras utilizing machine vision. Other methods are also available, but they are…
