This paper presents methods of robot localization using recent radio frequency identification technology. If the absolute position and orientation of a tag are given in an indoor environment where RFID tags are installed, a robot can estimate its location using the relationship of the identified tag and the robot in a relative coordinate. To derive this relationship, we propose three estimation techniques using a model of a RFID reader, the direction of identification and the detection range. In this algorithm, a suitable estimation method is selected out of the three proposed techniques depending on the situations and trajectory of robot in the detection range. Simulation and experimental results show that the proposed methods can provide good performance for localization.
An Efficient Localization of Mobile Robot in RFID Sensor Space
Choi, Byoung-Suk ; Lee, Jang-Myung ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 12, issue 1, 2006, Pages 15~22
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2006.12.1.015
This paper presents an efficient localization scheme for an indoor mobile robot using RFID tags on the floor. The mobile robot carries an RFID reader at the bottom, which reads the RFID tags on the floor to localize the mobile robot. Each RFID tar on the floor stores its own absolute position which is used to calculate the position and velocity of the mobile robot. Locating the RFID tags on the floor, which constructs an intelligent sensor space, may require several factors to be considered: economics feasibility and accuracy. In this paper, the optimal allocation scheme of the RFID tags on the floor to satisfy the accuracy constraint has been proposed and verified by the experiments. Based on the RFID reading, the mobile robot navigation has been successfully demonstrated to avoid obstacles and to reach the goal within a pre-specified time.

DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2006.12.1.023
As a pervasive healthcare application to help medication of elderly patients, the smart compliance monitors have been recently proposed. In this paper, we present a new smart drug/medicine pack (SDP) for ubiquitous medication monitoring, for which the packaging is either paper packet or blister pack. This ubiquitous compliance monitor is composed of several SDPs and a Bluetooth equipped PDA phone. The SDP is a wireless module that monitors the medication consumption unobtrusively by transmitting the sensed data of `drug removal` events to the medical center and by reminding patients when they take a dose on their mobile phone. The communication between SDP modules and PDA is realized via Bluetooth. The PDA is basically embedded to indicate the medication record and to alert every prescribed medication time during treatment. Experimental results show that the proposed system works exactly when the SDPs are far within about 2 [m] from PDA.

We present a new technological concept named RCP (Robotic Cellular Phone), which combines RT and CP. That is an ubiquitous robot. RCP consists of 3 sub-modules, RCP Mobility, RCP interaction, and RCP Integration. RCP Interaction is the main focus of this paper. It is an interactive emotion system which provides CP with multi-emotional signal receiving functionalities. RCP Interaction is linked with communication functions of CP in order to interface between CP and user through a variety of emotional models. It is divided into a tactile, an olfactory and a visual mode. The tactile signal receiving module is designed by patterns and beat frequencies which are made by mechanical-vibration conversion of the musical melody, rhythm and harmony. The olfactory signal receiving module is designed by switching control of perfume-injection nozzles which are able to give the signal receiving to the CP-called user through a special kind of smell according to the CP-calling user. The visual signal receiving module is made by motion control of DC-motored wheel-based system which can inform the CP-called user of the signal receiving through a desired motion according to the CP-calling user. In this paper, a prototype system is developed far multi-emotional signal receiving modes of CP. We describe an overall structure of the system and provide experimental results of the functional modules.

Ubiquitous location based services, offer helpful services anytime and anywhere by using real-time location information of objects based on ubiquitous network. Particularly, autonomous mobile robots can be a solution for various applications related to ubiquitous location based services, e.g. in hospitals, for cleaning, at airports or railway stations. However, a meaningful and still unsolved problem for most applications is to develop a robust and cheap positioning system. A typical example of position measurements is dead reckoning that is well known for providing a good short-term accuracy, being inexpensive and allowing very high sampling rates. However, the measurement always has some accumulated errors because the fundamental idea of dead reckoning is the integration of incremental motion information over time. The other hand, a localization system using RFID offers absolute position of robots regardless of elapsed time. We construct an absolute positioning system based on RFID and investigate how localization technique can be enhanced by RFID through experiment to measure the location of a mobile robot. Tags are placed on the floor at 5cm intervals in the shape of square in an arbitrary space and the accuracy of position measurement is investigated . To reduce the error and the variation of error, a weighting function based on Gaussian function is used. Different weighting values are applied to position data of tags since weighting values follow Gaussian function.

Localization is a essential technology for mobile robot to work well. Until now expensive sensors such as laser sensors have been used for mobile robot localization. We suggest RFID tag based localization system. RFID tag devices, antennas and tags are cheap and will be cheaper in the future. The RFID tag system is one of the most important elements in the ubiquitous system and RFID tag will be attached to all sorts of goods. Then, we can use this tags for mobile robot localization without additional costs. So, in this paper, the smart floor using passive RFID tags is proposed and, passive RFID tags are mainly used for identifying mobile robot`s location and pose in the smart floor. We discuss a number of challenges related to this approach, such as tag distribution (density and structure), typing and clustering. When a mobile robot localizes in this smart floor, the localization error mainly results from the sensing range of the RFID reader, because the reader just ran know whether a tag is in the sensing range of the sensor. So, in this paper, we suggest two algorithms to reduce this error. We apply the particle filter based Monte Carlo localization algorithm to reduce the localization error. And with simulations and experiments, we show the possibility of our particle filter based Monte Carlo localization in the RFID tag based localization system.

Recently, various ubiquitous networking services are developed and implemented for easy living. In general, new ubiquitous networking services require the new infrastructure including equipments and devices. However, it is difficult to replace existing infrastructure and devices with new ones in the home or office because of cost and maintenance problems. In this paper, we developed small-size web based RF wireless communication systems for sensor network applications. The designed RF systems are implemented using commercial system on a chip (SoC) on existing infrastructure and devices. The developed systems are tested for light control and temperature sensing and they are applied to sensor network training courses for students and engineer as well as various practical applications.

Recently, there are lots of concerning on ubiquitous environment of robots and URC (Ubiquitous Robotic Companion). In this paper, a practical ubiquitous interface system far controlling mobile robots in indoor environments was proposed. The interface system was designed as a manager-agent model including a PC manager, a mobile manager, and robot agents for being able to be accessed by any network. In the system, the PC manager has a 3D virtual environment and shows real images for a human-friendly interface, and share the computation load of the robot such as path planning and managing geographical information. It also contains Hybrid Format Manager(HFM) working for transforming the image, position, and control data and interchanging them between the robots and the managers. Mobile manager working in the minimized computing condition of handsets has a mobile interface environment displaying the real images and the position of the robot and being able to control the robots by pressing keys. Experimental results showed the proposed system was able to control robots rising wired and wireless LAN and mobile Internet.

This paper describes UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) control system which employs PC104 modules. It is controlled by application program based on Linux OS. This application consists of both Linux device driver in kernel-space and user application in user-space. In order to get data required in the unmanned flight, external devices are connected to PC104 modules. We explain how Linux device drivers deal with data transmitted by external devices and we account for how the user application controls UAV on the basis of data processed in the device driver as well. Furthermore we look into the role of GCS (Ground Control Station) which is to monitor the state of UAV.

A new silicon micro flow sensor with multiple temperature sensing elements was proposed and fabricated in considering wide range flow velocity measuring device. Thermal mass flow sensor measures the asymmetry of temperature profile around the heater which is modulated by the fluid flow. A micro mass flow sensor was normally composed of a central heater and a pair of temperature sensing elements around it. A new 2-D wide range micro flow sensor structure with three pairs of temperature sensing elements and a central heater was proposed and numerically simulated by Finite Difference Formulation to confirm the feasibility of the wide flow range sensor structure. To confirm the simulation result, the new flow sensor was fabricated on silicon substrate and the basic flow sensing properties of the sensor were measured.
