Title:
AUTONOMOUS MOVEMENT DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2010/038353
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided is an autonomous movement device that can draw, with less load, an environmental map with high reliability including a set point and that can carry out a more precise autonomous movement by using the environmental map.  An electronic control device (30) composing an autonomous movement device (1) is provided with a self-position estimate unit (32) that estimates the position of the autonomous movement device based on a local map drawn from information relating to the distance from a surrounding object and the angle with respect to the surrounding object and a movement amount of an omni wheel (13), an environmental map drawing unit (33) that draws an environmental map of a movement area from the position of the autonomous movement device and the local map during the movement guided with a joystick (21), a registration switch (23) that registers the position of the autonomous movement device as positional coordinates of a set point when the autonomous movement device reaches a predetermined set point during the guided movement, a memory unit (34) that stores the environmental map and the set point, a route planning unit (35) that plans a movement route by making use of the set point on the environmental map stored in the memory unit (34), and a running control unit (36) that controls so that the autonomous movement device moves autonomously along the movement route.
