Abstract

In this paper, the feasibility of utilizing spatial hearing for robot's pose search is investigated, and a novel and robust robot location and orientation detection method for highly complex and noisy environment is proposed. Unlike traditional methods, the proposed method imitates the behavior of human or animals that utilize the experience of sound field features at different location and orientation in a normal environment to locate themselves. Since this method can provide global location and orientation detection, it is suitable to navigate the robot from the present location to the destination by adjusting its orientation.
