P2.9.22 Odor plume tracking using a mobile robot withpseudochemotaxis

Y. Takei, N. Masuta & H. Nanto
Odor plume tracking robot is developed by using semiconductor-type gas sensors and a mobile robot without any microprocessors for controlling the moving direction. The mobile robot has two wheels driven by the DC motors and two gas sensors which are used to detect the gas concentration in the plume. The outputs of gas sensors located in the left and right side of the robot are directly connected to the motor actuators located in the opposite...
