Tracking Solutions for Mobile Robots: Evaluating Positional Tracking using Dual-axis Rotating Laser Sweeps

Sebastian P. Kleinschmidt, Christian S. Wieghardt, Bernardo Wagner

Abstract

This paper provides a comprehensive introduction into state of the art marker-based tracking methods. Therefore, optical, magnetic, acoustic and inertial tracking are described and evaluated. All presented approaches are compared regarding accuracy, resolution, tracking volume, measurement rate and outdoor and indoor suitability. Additionally, typical technical limitations are mentioned for each system according to their functional principle. As a technology with increasing potential for mobile robotics, we evaluate the achievable accuracy for pose tracking using dual-axis rotating laser sweeps as used in modern tracking systems for virtual reality applications.
