Localizsation and Control for Trajectory Tracking for Autonomous Lawn Mowers

Abstract The present bachelor thesis presents the necessary methods for an exact selflocalization by using an Inertial Mesurment Unit (IMU) and the odometry of an autonomous lawn mower. This self-localization shall be used in later work together with a localization of a particle filter. The required standard models [12] for the individual sensor systems were examined and the required parameters determined. Measurements were taken with the autonomous lawn mower to develop a Kalman filter [15] based on the data obtained.
